Clinton charities refile six years of tax returns to amend errors

The foundation refiled its Form 990 tax returns for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, while the Clinton Health Access Initiative refiled its returns for 2012 and 2013 after Reuters discovered errors in the forms earlier this year. The charities said they were not legally required to refile the forms and were only doing so in the interest of transparency following what the foundation’s president, Donna Shalala, called an “exhaustive review.” The charities are best known for their work on health and environmental issues in the developing world, but have come under renewed scrutiny this year with Hillary Clinton’s decision to seek the Democratic Party’s nomination for the presidency in the election in November 2016.
