RICHMOND — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe released summaries of income tax returns Tuesday — five days after his Republican opponent, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II, released nearly a decade of tax returns in an effort to raise transparency as an issue in the race.
According to the six pages of abridged returns provided by the McAuliffe campaign, the businessman made $8.2 million in 2011, including nearly $1.9 million in capital gains income. In 2010, he reported making $1.8 million, including about $812,000 in capital gains. In 2009, he reported income of $6.5 million, including $4.2 million in capital gains.
The documents, which McAuliffe filed with his wife, don’t include additional years.
Republicans have criticized McAuliffe since Cuccinelli took the unusual step last week of opening eight years of tax records — a total of 225 pages — to the media. Except for forbidding copies and redacting some personal data, the campaign gave reporters full access to Cuccinelli’s 1040 forms.
