CHICAGO (AP) — The Illinois governor candidates are clashing over whether Republican Bruce Rauner should release more information about how he made his money and any tax breaks he may have received.
Rauner released eight pages of his 2013 tax returns Friday. They show the Winnetka businessman and his wife earned nearly $61 million and paid $17 million in state and federal taxes. That’s a combined rate of about 27.5 percent.
Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn’s campaign called the information “wholly insufficient” because Rauner didn’t release his full tax schedules. Those documents would provide details on Rauner’s sources of income and any conflicts of interest.
A Rauner spokeswoman says he has disclosed his investments that do business in Illinois and has pledged to use a blind trust if elected.
Quinn released his returns and schedules earlier this year.
