Boughton Calls On Candidates To Release Their Tax Returns

In 2012, some U.S. Senate candidates raced to release their federal and state income tax returns to the news media. This year the gubernatorial candidates are getting involved.

Danbury Mark Mark Boughton, one of six Republicans vying for the nomination, released his returns Tuesday and called upon his fellow candidates to do the same.

“In the interest of personal financial disclosure and giving the public as much information as possible, I call on every candidate for governor to join me in releasing their tax returns,” Boughton said.

According to the tax return Boughton uploaded online, he and his wife, Phyllis, had an adjusted gross income of $179,533. The couple paid about $25,950 in federal income taxes and about $9,231 in state taxes. The couple will received a $2,687 refund from the state. Last year, they had a similar $2,500 refund from the state.

It’s unknown if any of the other Republican candidates will be willing to release their returns, but a spokesman for Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said they would be releasing his tax return in the future.

“Being Connecticut’s governor is a privilege, not an entitlement, and people expect everyone to play by the same rules,” Boughton said.
