Can a prospective employer ask for my previous 2 years tax returns?

I am interviewing with a company for a prospective job. I was just asked for my earnings from the last two years. Assuming that he would like to see a tax return. Is this legal? I cannot believe I can be obligated to provide this to a prospective employer.
Can a current employer ask for tax returns? I would imagine if this was legal it would be standard practice. No?
