Rauner holds back on releasing tax returns




In both a Tump- and Clinton-like move Gov. Bruce Rauner is holding back on releasing his personal income taxes this year — a departure from past practice. The Rauner Family Foundation also has not filed its papers this year.

Since Oct. 20, Rauner’s office did not respond to questions about why the governor hadn't released his 2015 taxes and whether he planned to do so. Informed today that POLITICO was poised to publish a story, the governor's office released this statement.

"Governor Rauner will release his tax returns, as he has done in the past, when additional filings are completed, including the filings for the Rauner Family Foundation," said the text-message statement from spokeswoman Catherine Kelly.

The governor's office did not say whether the disclosures would come before or after Tuesday's election.
