DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush plans Tuesday to release 33 years of his personal income tax returns, including before and after his two terms as Florida governor.
Campaign spokeswoman Allie Brandenburger says Bush’s decision “is consistent with the high level of disclosure he has practiced during his life in public office.”
Bush aides contend the information is more than any previous presidential candidate. The voluntary disclosure also is aimed at drawing a contrast with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. She has filed the filed the financial disclosure form required by the Federal Election Commission for presidential candidates but has not made public her tax returns, a more precise record of income.
Bush’s decision to release the information was first published by The Wall Street Journal.
