On eve of debate, Tierney releases tax returns

US Representative John F. Tierney released six years of tax returns to several news organizations on Wednesday, revealing that he and his wife, Patrice, reported annual adjusted gross income averaging $180,957 and paid federal income taxes averaging $26,561.

The Tierneys’ returns were straightforward and appeared to contain no unusual deductions or income. The great majority of their income came from Tierney’s congressional salary, currently $174,000 a year, the returns show.
