Maryland may require future presidential candidates to make their tax returns public to appear on state ballot

A proposed law requiring presidential candidates to make their tax returns public in order to appear on Maryland's ballot has advanced in the state Senate.

Senators gave the measure preliminary approval Thursday. The bill could receive final Senate approval next week, after which it would go to the House.

The bill requires presidential and vice presidential candidates to release their tax returns for the preceding five years. It was introduced after President Donald Trump bucked tradition and did not release his tax returns during his 2016 campaign.

Maryland could be the first state to enact such a requirement.

California and New Jersey passed similar bills, but they were vetoed.
