We'll find out the answer to that if and when it reaches the Supreme Court. However, as the official response is that the DOJ says it would be illegal to release the returns, it would be hugely wrong for Congress to hold anyone in contempt for following that advice.

Precedent may well be important here. Under what circumstances have Congress subpoenad tax returns in the past?
