Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release March 19, 1994
                        Statement of John D. Podesta
                        White House Staff Secretary

The article in the New York Times today is incorrect insofar as it states that a review of the Clintons' tax returns is being coordinated by a team of accountants under the direction of the Clintons' personal attorney.

Their returns have been professionally prepared by qualified CPAs, and we have confidence that they were correctly done. Should any facts emerge that indicate that they owe more or less in taxes, any amounts underpaid will be paid.
