Rick Scott's tax returns may be awhile in coming: 'waiting on forms'



Don't hold your breath on any more of those financial details coming from Republican Rick Scott. The campaign said today it will remain true to its promise to release the former HCA executive's tax returns, but there's a bit of a delay. "It probably won't be until later this month or early October,'' said Chad Colby, Scott campaign spokesman.

Democrat Alex Sink has promised to release her returns, and the returns of her husband, Bill McBride, for the past five years. Her campaign said they will post them on Sink's website this week.

What's the delay on Scott? "He filed an extension, and we are still waiting on some forms before 2009 is complete,'' Colby said. He argues that the campaign disclosure Scott filed in June "is much more detailed" than the form filed by Sink, which was her 2009 tax returns.
