SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Mitt Romney privately raised millions of dollars from New York's elite on Sunday, as Democrats launched coordinated attacks against the Republican presidential candidate, intensifying calls for him to explain offshore bank accounts and release several years of tax returns. The line of attack, dismissed by the Romney campaign as an "unfounded character assault," follows new reports that raise questions about Romney's personal wealth, which could exceed $250 million.

FLORENCE, S.C. - His wealth and taxes suddenly a campaign focus, Mitt Romney said yesterday that he pays an effective federal tax rate of about 15 percent. That's far less than if his earnings were wages rather than gains from investments and dividends, and the disclosure under pressure triggered a sharp response from the Democratic White House, as well as from one of his GOP presidential rivals. Romney also told reporters that he received money from speechmaking before he announced his presidential candidacy early last year "but not very much.

Mayor Goode, the only mayoral candidate who has not released tax returns during the 1987 primary campaign, will make tax records for the years 1983 through 1986 available for public inspection next week, his campaign spokesman said yesterday.

WASHINGTON - Rep. Nancy Pelosi was emphatic. Mitt Romney's refusal to release more than two years of his personal tax returns, she said, makes him unfit to win confirmation as a member of the president's cabinet, let alone to hold the high office himself. Sen. Harry Reid went further: Romney's refusal to make public more of his tax records makes him unfit to be a dogcatcher. They do not, however, think that standard of transparency should apply to them. The Democratic leaders of the Senate and the House of Representatives are among hundreds of senators and representatives from both parties who refused to release their tax records.

The tax returns submitted by Center City lawyer Thomas L. McGill Jr. were examined in microscopic detail in U.S. District Court yesterday as federal prosecutors tried to show that he intentionally evaded paying about $47,000 in federal taxes owed on income from 1980 through 1987. Through testimony and documents, the prosecution showed that McGill submitted his returns late six times between 1980 and 1987, did not enclose the amount of money he owed and made only one voluntary payment of $3,000 between 1980 and 1987 - a period in which he had taxable income of about $210,273.

Democrat George R. Burrell Jr. yesterday became the last of the eight mayoral candidates to release his income tax returns, and the reports raised new questions about his personal finances. For instance, in 1987, the year he won election to City Council, Burrell reported an adjusted gross income of $35,836 and claimed $31,759 in deductions, including $15,577 in business expenses and other miscellaneous deductions. He ended up paying $32 in federal income taxes. The average taxpayer reporting $35,000 in income in 1987 claimed $1,624 in business expenses, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

Pennsylvania and Delaware residents on active duty in the reserve or National Guard can get free assistance in preparing their 1990 standard federal and state tax returns through certified public accountants' organizations in those states. Both groups will provide the same aid for families of eligible military personnel. Although men and women serving in the Persian Gulf need not file federal returns until after leaving the combat zone, those on active duty elsewhere must file by April 15 to avoid penalties.

TRENTON - Gov. Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, will get more time to complete their family's 2011 income-tax returns. The Governor's Office said the Christies had filed for a six-month filing extension, though it did not specify why the delay was sought. This is the third straight year the Christies have sought a filing extension. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno filed her family's tax forms by Tuesday's deadline. But Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak said copies of Guadagno's returns would not be released until the Christies filed their tax paperwork.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Let's see tax returns Donald Trump has said we should not support NATO allies who don't pay their "fair share. " The American people need to know whether Trump is paying his fair share of taxes - or is he dodging his share of our national-security costs and forcing them to be paid by hard-working Americans. What is he hiding by not releasing his tax information, as all other modern-day candidates have done? |Greg McCoy, Chadds Ford

President Obama made the case for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia on Tuesday, praising his former secretary of state's experience while painting Republican Donald Trump as an unqualified fraud. Describing the November election as "a choice about the very meaning of America," Obama said the Republican Party had been preying on fear with a "dark, pessimistic" vision of the country - and contended that its nominee didn't deserve the support of working people.

Thomas Hylton is the author of "Save Our Land, Save Our Towns" All year, Donald Trump has resisted calls to voluntarily release his income tax returns, which for decades has been standard practice for presidential candidates. But why does he even have a choice? For that matter, why does anyone have a choice? Shouldn't everyone's income tax return, or at least a summary of it, be a public document? Government at all levels requires money to operate, and every citizen is expected to pay his or her fair share.

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue is launching a pilot program to intensify its examination of sales and use tax returns, the agency said Tuesday. The new unit in Harrisburg will conduct what the revenue department called "remote examinations" of business activities by comparing information reported to the state with other sources, such as the IRS, other state agencies, and third parties. If discrepencies are found, the department will send letters asking for an explanation, it said.

Democrat Hillary Clinton attacked presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's character and questioned his refusal to release his tax returns as she campaigned Wednesday in New Jersey ahead of the state's June 7 primary. Clinton was just beginning an assault on Trump's proposal for steep tax cuts for the wealthy when a man in the audience at Camden County College in Blackwood shouted, "What about his tax returns?" She smiled and said, "We'll get to that. " "Because when you run for president, especially when you become the nominee, that is kind of expected," Clinton said.

Donald Trump has stated that he is currently under IRS audit and claims to be audited every year. Due to this, he has stated he will not make his tax returns public. Every other candidate has released their tax returns even though some of those tax returns are still available under the IRS statute of limitations for audit. I believe that voters must be allowed to see what Mr. Trump and his attorneys or accountants have sworn under the penalties of perjury are true and correct to the best of their knowledge.

Below are excerpts of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's interview Monday with the Inquirer Editorial Board via conference call. Question: The question that keeps coming up [from readers] - and these are Democrats - is whether or not you are trustworthy to be president. And this has nothing to do with Benghazi or the emails. It's all about the Wall Street connection and the fact that you made speeches and received such large amounts of money for them. ... I'm wondering how you are reassuring people that there is no linkage between those speeches and how you would perform as president, and to also ask why you have not been more forthcoming about the content of the speeches you made to some of these Wall Street groups.

Lyndon Johnson simply was exasperated. Barack Obama's mischief was methodical. Four days before the 1966 congressional elections, Johnson, asked about criticism from Richard Nixon, testily responded: "I do not want to get into a debate ... with a chronic campaigner like Mr. Nixon. " Johnson's disparagement endeared Nixon to Republican voters, thereby propelling him toward the presidency. Four days before Saturday's South Carolina GOP primary, Obama improved Donald Trump's standing with Republicans by volubly deploring him and cannily placing him in the Republican mainstream: "He says in more interesting ways what the other [Republican]

Renee Chenault-Fattah, the longtime NBC10 news anchor, has parted ways with the station, six months after she was placed on leave following the federal indictment of her husband, U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah. "Renee Chenault-Fattah no longer works at NBC10," the station said in an email Tuesday. "She remains a friend and valued colleague to all of us. We are truly grateful for her many years of service to the station and our viewers.

Federal prosecutors on Tuesday called Chaka "Chip" Fattah Jr. a "cheat," a "deadbeat," and a "scam artist" who duped banks, clients, and the Philadelphia School District out of thousands of dollars to support his extravagant personal tastes. Fattah lobbed accusations of his own, saying government lawyers had no concept of how business works and only prosecuted him because "he spent money in ways they don't agree with. " Those barbs - traded across a courtroom - came as both sides made their final pitches to the eight-man, four-woman jury that will soon decide Fattah's fate on federal bank- and tax-fraud charges.
