Video: Romney Advisor Says No More Tax Returns Coming

Publish date:

Appearing on MSNBC this morning, senior Romney campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom that the GOP presidential candidate has no plans to release additional tax return information (video below).

This is in response to a report by the Washington Post about Romney using an obscure law to hide his investments:

Romney, whose wealth has become a central issue in the 2012 campaign, has taken advantage of an obscure exception in federal ethics laws to avoid disclosing the nature and extent of his holdings.

By offering a limited description of his assets, Romney has made it difficult to know precisely where his money is invested, whether it is offshore or in controversial companies, or whether those holdings could affect his policies or present any conflicts of interest.

So far, Romney has released only his full 2010 tax returns and an estimate of his 2011 return. Fehrnstrom said Romney would disclose the full 2011 return once it’s filed.

However, other presidential candidates have released multiple years of returns, including President Obama and Romney's father Gov. George Romney, who released 12 years of tax returns when he ran for president in 1968.
