Mike Pence Releases 10 Years of Tax Returns

Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence released 10 years of tax returns on Friday evening, a disclosure that Donald Trump, his partner on the Republican ticket, has so far declined to make.

The returns from the Pence family date from 2006 until 2015. And they show that — unlike Trump's — Mike Pence's finances are relatively routine.

Last year, Pence's gross adjusted income was $113,026; he paid an effective tax rate of 12.4 percent and gave about $9,000 to charity, according to the campaign.

Since 2006, the family's income has fluctuated between about $188,000 in 2010 to just north of $110,000 now. In 2015, the family's earnings were its lowest in the last 10 years.

Critics have called on Trump to release his tax records, which he says he will do only upon completion of an IRS audit. But Trump also suggested this week that he would immediately release his tax returns if Hillary Clinton releases emails she deleted on her private server.
