President Donald Trump has filed for an extension of his 2016 taxes, a White House official told CNN.
The reason he listed for needing an extension remains unclear.
ABC News noted that filing an extension with the Internal Revenue Service gives taxpayers an extra six months to file. That means Trump will have to file his return by Oct. 18, 2017.
The news was first reported by NBC's Kelly O'Donnell.
Trump previously refused to release his tax returns, saying he couldn't because he was under audit by the IRS. He is the first presidential candidate in recent history to opt not release his returns during a presidential campaign.
The president did, however, vow to release his returns after the audit was complete.
In May, Trump's lawyers wrote a letter saying that the past 10 years of Trump's returns don't "show any income of any type from Russian sources" with some exceptions, The Hill reports.
The word "exceptions" sparked backlash on social media.
