20 Of The Most Powerful Tax March Moments From Across The Country

Tax season is a tedious time for all of us… well, except for Donald Trump.

While the rest of us are gearing up for the filing deadline — which has actually been extended to April 18 this year — our commander in chief is dodging unwanted attention with another weekend at Mar-a-Lago (which is ironically costing taxpayers a lot more than they'd like).

He can run, but he certainly can't hide.

Americans are out in full force across the country for April 15's Tax March and demanding one thing: the president's tax returns.

In the spirit of the Women's Day March, hundreds of thousands gathered in their respective cities to air their grievances with Trump, who promised to release his tax returns, yet continues to keep everything on the down-low.

The Washington Post states — though it is not required — every president over the past 40 years has released his tax returns, so naturally, people are suspicious. What exactly is he hiding?

In Trump's hometown, New Yorkers made sure their voices were heard during the Tax March.

Of course, things were really cookin' in Washington, DC.

Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh were three of many participating in the 100+ marches all across the US.


It looks like people overseas didn't forget about the Tax March, either.


Naturally, this occasion delivered plenty of creativity from protesters.


We heard from some of our favorite politicians…

According to The Hill, Rep. Maxine Waters said, “I don't respect this president. I don't trust this president. He's not working in the best interests of the American people.”


And our favorite celebrities…

… and man's best friend.

Even some Republicans are questioning the president.

Efforts aren't ending with the Tax March. To mark Trump's 100th day in office, there will be a Climate March on April 29.

Though it is wonderful to see people coming together in support of their common beliefs, we have to wonder what is next.

Of course, we want to know if Trump will release his tax returns, but more importantly, will he listen to the American people — and not just in regards to taxes?

We had a rough week, but what can we expect for the future?
