On Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson alleged that Joe Biden had deliberately taken steps to hide the public records of his tax returns in order to hide the origins of his wealth. He further added that the President’s campaign website no longer has his 2016 to 2018 tax returns available for viewing.

Despite his 2016 to 2018 returns being hidden, on his website the President’s federal and Delaware tax returns from 2019 are still visible. The links for the previous years of tax returns directly take the visitor to a donations page for the Democrats.

Carlson added that for over 50 years Joe Biden has worked for the U.S. government and has not had a private sector job. Despite this, he has managed to acquire wealth. He added that this is why Biden has now taken to hiding his tax returns as he does not want people to know how he has made his money.

Carlson also said that the fact that the links redirect to a fundraising page is their way of saying that people needed to stop asking questions and instead focus on giving their money to others.

Despite these claims, the internet archive site Wayback Machine still has the archive of the previous versions of the disclosure page, which previously also featured Vice President Kamala Harris’s 2019 tax returns, which were redirected to the donation page in July 2022.

At this time it is not clear why the links and disclosures on Joe Biden’s campaign website have changed.
