But after Neal asked for six years' worth of Trump's tax returns last month, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin swooped in to say the request was probably unconstitutional.
The White House and the Democratic-controlled House are waging a multi-front battle over investigations into Trump and the administration has been refusing to comply across the board, refusing to comply with subpoenas for the unredacted report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and documents related to the testimony by former White House Counsel Donald McGahn.
A House committee on Friday subpoenaed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and the head of the Internal Revenue Service over their refusal to hand over President Trump's tax returns.
A Treasury spokesman confirmed to CNN it has received Mr Neal's subpoena request.
Mnuchin had turned down Neal's previous request for the material on Monday, arguing it was made "for the sake of exposure" - essentially calling it a fishing expedition - and has previously admonished the committee that "investigative power is not unlimited".
Unlike other requests for information coming from House Democrats, Mr Neal is relying on a decades-old tax statute - 6103 - that says that the House Ways and Means chairman, Senate Finance Committee chairman or chief of staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation can request any individual's tax information in the course of their legislative business. If they refuse to comply, Democrats can sue and ask a federal court to enforce their demands.
'I am informing you now that the Department may not lawfully fulfill the Committee's request, ' he wrote to Neal. The New York state Senate passed a bill on Wednesday which would require the release of any state tax returns requested by the chair of the federal House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, or the Joint Committee on Taxation.
Ways and Means member Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) said Trump has shown contempt for the Constitution.
The president was asked about a law allowing the heads of key congressional committees to gain access to any USA return.
The topic has been a contentious one for the president since his time on the campaign trail in 2015, and throughout his administration, as he has refused to release his financial information. He concluded that the Treasury Department is "not authorized to disclose the requested returns and return information".
He expressed doubts about the legality of the Democrats' request at the time.
