HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s tax commissioner says an internal review shows no one from the state Department of Revenue Services released part of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s 1995 state income tax filings to the New York Times.

Kevin Sullivan says he instructed staff Monday to check whether anyone illegally disclosed the information. He says the agency’s system would allow it to determine whether anybody had attempted to access or had accessed that information.

Sullivan says he’s satisfied that there has been “no illegal disclosure by anyone” at the agency.

The New York Times reported Saturday that it had received anonymously the first pages of Trump’s 1995 state income tax filings in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

In Connecticut, the unauthorized inspection of tax return information is an unclassified misdemeanor.
