On Tuesday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams revealed that he is willing to disclose to the public his tax record for the sake of transparency and public accountability.
Adams said he initially refused to disclose his tax records due to an arrogant reporter who asked him rudely about releasing his tax records.
“The city gave clear rules. This is what we expect of our elected officials, to show that they are transparent. They gave us the rules! My COIB report, my filers told us what we have to do,” Adams said.
“I comply every year — every year! So when you arrogantly come to me, because you’re not gonna disrespect me, and ask a question like I gotta answer you yes or no, then you know what you’re gonna get? You’re gonna get a no!” Adams added.
He boasted that he paid a lot of money for his tax.
“I pay a lot of taxes, and New York is gonna see how much I pay,” he said.
