If Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee for president he will have to release his income tax information at some point. It is amazing that he has made it this far in politics without releasing that information at all.

Romney has never released his tax returns – when running for US Senate in 1994, for governor of Massachusetts in 2002, or during his last presidential bid in 2008. During his 1994 race against Senator Edward M. Kennedy, he called on him to release his state and federal taxes to prove he had “nothing to hide.”

“It’s time the biggest-taxing senator in Washington shows the people of Massachusetts how much he pays in taxes,” Romney said at the time. He said he would disclose his on the same day as Kennedy, but Kennedy never did.

The attacks Romney will face from Democrats and the questioning from the press will be relentless. Everybody knows Romney is a successful businessman and a multimillionaire. What are people going to learn from these tax returns that we don't already know?
