House committee decides to release Trump's personal and corporate tax returns.

On Tuesday, the House Ways and Means Committee decided to release six years of former president Donald Trump's tax returns.

Information could be made public as soon as Wednesday, the last day of Democratic control of Congress before the Republicans take over in January.

The panel voted along party lines to make the returns available, and the report from the House Jan. 6 committee on the riot at the U.S. Capitol .

The committee issued its 29-page summary report on Tuesday evening, detailing its inquiry into an IRS regulation that requires audits of returns.

 The audit was not finished by the time Trump left office, and only one year of his returns while in office was chosen for the necessary scrutiny.

Separately, the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) published a 39-page report on Tuesday evening that summarised Trump's personal and commercial tax returns.
