Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), will release a batch of tax returns in an effort to pressure Donald Trump into releasing his, CNBC reported Thursday morning. 

{mosads}Clinton will release her 2015 returns this week, while Kaine is expected to release 10 years of tax returns, the report said. 

The returns will show Clinton’s effective tax rate around 35 percent and her charitable donations making up 10 percent, according to CNBC. 

Clinton also released eight years of returns — covering 2007 to 2014 — earlier in the campaign. Returns for Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, are now public dating back to 1977 because of the couple’s extensive political careers.

Trump, meanwhile, has said he won’t release his tax returns because they are under audit by the IRS. 

The IRS has said Trump can still release the returns despite an audit. 

He would be the first presidential nominee in 40 years not to release his income tax returns. 

Trump’s campaign chief, Paul Manafort, has said Trump likely won’t release his tax returns before the election in November.
