    FILE - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally, March 19, 2016, in Fountain Hills, Arizona.

    Donald Trump's campaign quietly published a letter from the real estate mogul's tax counsel regarding the state of his tax returns, bolstering claims made by Trump that he is continuously audited by the IRS due to the complexity and breadth of his returns, NBC News reported.

    "Your personal tax returns have been under continuous examination by the Internal Revenue Service since 2002, consistent with the IRS' practice for large and complex businesses," the letter reads.

    It also states that Trump's returns from 2009 forward are still under audit, but that audits on returns from 2002 to 2008 have been "closed administratively."

    The GOP front-runner has previously bristled at the state of his tax returns when pressed by reporters.
