CHICAGO (AP) -- Protesters are took part in Tax Day demonstrations nationwide, calling on President Donald Trump to release his tax returns.

Organizers say marches were planned Saturday in about 150 cities, including Indianapolis and Washington, D.C., where theirs began with a rally at the U.S. Capitol.

Trump is the first major party nominee in more than 40 years to not release his tax returns, saying it was because he was under audit. He later said that voters don't care.

Protest organizers say Americans deserve to know about Trump's business ties and potential conflicts of interest.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, of Massachusetts, on Friday posted an online video urging Congress to force Trump to release the returns.

Tuesday, April 18th is the deadline for taxpayers to file returns.
