Scott's reps say they'll probably release his tax returns Friday



Brian Burgess, spokesman for Republican Rick Scott, said this week that he expects the candidate for governor to release his long-awaited personal tax returns on Friday. 

Scott first said he would release his tax returns in June after his primary opponent, Bill McCollum, agreed to release his. Then, after Democrat Alex Sink said she would release hers and her husband's for the past five years, Scott's campaign said they were still completing the paperwork. Sink posted her returns on her website last month.

But rather than release the returns for the four previous years, which presumably are complete, the Scott campaign said they wanted to let them loose all at once. The latest report was that the extension Scott's 2009 federal tax returns goes until Oct. 15. This week they said they expect to make them available -- maybe -- on Oct. 8.
