Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law on July 8 giving access to Trump's NY state tax returns to "congressional tax-related committees" if they can cite a "legitimate task" of Congress in seeking them, according to NBC.
Trump, through personal attorney William Consovoy, recapitulates earlier arguments that the committee lacks a legitimate legislative objective in issuing the request for the President's returns - not a requirement under the tax code or the NY state law.
Ways and Means Democrats, led by chairman Richard Neal, have also been waging a separate war on Trump's Treasury Department, asking a judge to order the IRS to hand over his federal returns.
Neal is using a little-known IRS provision known as 6103, which allows the chairmen of the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee to request and obtain an individual's tax information for a legitimate legislative goal.
"We have filed a lawsuit today in our ongoing efforts to end presidential harassment", Jay Sekulow, one of the president's attorneys, told The Associated Press in a statement.

High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi called the capsizing episode "the worst Mediterranean tragedy of this year ". The capsize came only a few weeks after some 68 migrants died when an Italy-bound boat sank off Tunisia.
The president, "in his capacity as a private citizen", filed suit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the Committee on Ways and Means, New York State Attorney General Letitia James, and commissioner of the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance Michael Schmidt, for "declaratory and injunctive relief". The TRUST Act was signed into law by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this month. "The actions taken by the House and NY officials are nothing more than political retribution".
It said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the committee wants Trump's returns simply to expose "a political opponent's private tax information". However, New York officials have argued that the state returns would contain much of the same information found on the president's federal returns. Neal's office did not respond to an after-hours request for comment.
The lawsuit comes as Trump is appealing other court decisions that sided with Congress when the President attempted to block congressional committees from obtaining his financial records.
The administration and the Trump's business have repeatedly tried to stall Democrats' investigations by filing lawsuits and not cooperating.
The fresh legal action joins a tide of courtroom battles waged by the president to shield his personal finances from investigators, including congressional Democrats, state lawmakers, and regulators.
The animating goal of that initial request was exposure of Trump's private tax information, according to the new complaint.
