Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said it’s a “good guess” that his department will respond to House Ways and Means’s request for Trump’s tax returns by tomorrow, reporters in Congress said today.

Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA) demanded in the April 3 letter to IRS commissioner Chuck Rettig that the government reply by April 10.

“In general, we try to accommodate these requests,” Mnuchin reportedly said, after being asked if the Treasury would meet Neal’s deadline. “I’m not going to make a specific comment on that, but it would be a good guess.”

Neal asked for six years of tax returns for Trump’s businesses and individual filings, as well as the IRS’s work papers surrounding Trump’s tax information.
