Gingrich releases tax returns

Newt Gingrich released his 2010 tax returns tonight, showing the GOP presidential candidate and his wife, Callista, paid $994,708 in federal taxes in 2010 on about $3.1 million in income.

Most of their income, about $2,500,000, was derived from partnerships and S Corporations. They reported $450,000 in wages.


Personal financial disclosure forms filed last summer show Gingrich is worth about $6.5 million.

Gingrich has called on rival Mitt Romney to release his own returns, part of a broad campaign to force the former chief executive of Bain Capital to explain his work in buying and selling companies and how he profited from that.

The returns also detailed that the Gingriches paid $19,800 in alimony. The former House speaker has two ex-wives, including one, Marianne, who tonight accused him of seeking an “open marriage” while Callista was his mistress.
