If there is nothing to hide why is Trump so desperate to keep his tax returns a secret?

I have yet to hear anything intelligent about why Trump refuses to supply the information. I think he knows that he will be exposed for what he is.

Update:

From the answers it seems like I am not the only person who wonders about the extent of Trump's fraudulent business deals. He is on record for stiffing many of the contractors who worked on his hotel projects. But then, as Cohen already testified, he pays people off to shut them up. Just like Stormy, who received a payment to keep quiet.

    Because... just like yours.... they are nobody else's business...... there is no law that requires any President to make his personal taxes public.... in fact it is against the law for any one to make someone else's personal taxes public.... if the President has to then every one else should have to..... you first

    It looked like Donald Trump had painted himself into a corner.  He chose the walk through the wet paint and has left trails for law enforcement to track and investigate.  Talk about dumb criminal moves.......

    Trump reportedly has interests in 280 companies. He likely has partners in all of them. those partners are entitled to have the businesses operate peacefully, without any demonstrations from leftist fools [or anyone else] protesting Trump.

    Michael Cohen revealed some of what's there.  He showed copies of real estate documents where Trump gave one set of values & occupancies to a bank for loan purposes, and different set of numbers to the government for tax purposes.  That's fraud.  Multiply it by 10 years and 100's of buildings, and you've a one man crime wave in the tax and bank records!

    For the love of god, this is so boring. If there were any indiscrepencies with Trump's tax returns, they would be dealt with by the tax authorities of the US. Will you please stop with this infantile innuendo and hyperbole, and get a fu­cking clue

    It's pretty smart.

    By hiding something irrelevant and making people waste time and effort to see it, how long has it been now 3 years? it distract and takes away time from other things that are worth looking at.

    Trump is a smart guy, saying stupid stuff all the time on Twitter, just playing the Democrats, it's too easy.

    Odd for a guy who said he had no problem releasing them 3 years ago when the "audit" is finished.
