The Perry campaign is pushing Mitt Romney to release his tax returns, reports Politico’s Ben Smith:
“Governor Perry has always released his tax returns and Mitt Romney and the other candidates should do the same,” Perry spokesman Mark Miner told POLITICO.
But Romney aide Eric Fehrnstrom said his candidate wouldn’t even consider releasing them until next Spring.
“We’ll take a look at the question of releasing tax returns during the next tax filing season,” he said.
Perry regularly releases his tax returns, most recently last Friday. They showed him and his wife paying $51,000 in federal taxes on $217,447 in adjusted gross income in 2010.
