Why is it a problem?
Latest political soap opera is swirling around Trump's tax returns.
Step back and ask the bigger question: Why should anyone's tax forms be private?
Repooflicans should be PROUD to show that they are perfect traitors who pay exactly ZERO TAX ZERO TAX ZERO TAX.
Non-Repoofs should be PROUD to show that they are doing their part to support the country.
Everyone should be PROUD.
So where's the problem? Best guess: Showing the forms would reveal trade secrets of the evasion industry, would let competing rich fuckheads copy your special crimes.

Proving my non-Repoof credentials: I did show my 1040 here back in 2012.
Since then the amounts have naturally varied, but the effective tax is about the same.
