In a letter Saturday, Neil informed the IRS commissioner he now has until April 23rd, to provide six years worth of the president’s personal and business returns.

Neil also dismissed concerns regarding the request, which were raised by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The Democrat chairman warned that failure to comply, would be interpreted as a “denial” of the request.

The president has long maintained he will not release his returns while under audit.
