WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris will release their 2019 tax returns on Tuesday, the Biden campaign said, calling on President Donald Trump, who has come under fire for not releasing his returns, to do the same.

Biden's deputy campaign manager, Kate Bedingfield, said on a call with reporters ahead of the first presidential debate on Tuesday that returns for Biden, Harris and their spouses would be released online on Tuesday afternoon.

The returns will be the 22nd year of returns that Biden has publicly released and the 15th year for Harris.

"This is a historic level of transparency meant to give the American people faith once again that their leaders will look out for them and not their own bottom lines," said Bedingfield.
