A top House Democrat has given the IRS until April 23 to hand over President Donald Trump's tax returns, telling the IRS that the law clearly gives Congress a right to them. 

The government's failure to respond by the deadline could send the dispute into federal court.

The demand on Saturday from Rep. Richard Neal, the House Ways and Means Committee chairman, comes after the Trump administration asked for more time to consider his initial request last week.

Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, argues that a 1920-era law saying the IRS 'shall furnish' any tax return requested by Congress 'is unambiguous and raises no complicated legal issues' and that the Treasury Department's objections lack merit.

The letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig is the latest exchange in a tug of war over Trump's returns, which would give lawmakers far greater insight into the president's business dealings and potential conflicts of interest as it exercises its oversight role.
