Pence releases 10 years of tax returns

While Donald Trump resists making his tax returns public, his running mate, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana, released a decade of his own filings Friday.

The returns reflected Pence's government salaries as governor and, earlier, as a member of the House of Representatives. In 2015, Pence and his wife, Karen, reported adjusted gross income of $113,026, paying federal taxes of $8,956 and contributing $8,923 to charities.

A statement by the Trump campaign accompanying Pence's returns said the release was being made with the "full support of Trump, who plans to release his tax returns upon the completion of a routine audit."

Candidates are not required to release their tax returns, but if Trump does not disclose them before the election, he would be the first major-party presidential nominee not to do so in four decades. Trump has submitted the required personal financial disclosure form, which includes details of his business interests.

Pence on Friday also released his own personal financial disclosure, which showed his state pension, a few investments and a series of loans totaling more than $80,000 for his children's education.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine made public their tax data last month.
