Election Watch: Cindy McCain releases partial tax information
The presidential campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain has released the top two pages of Cindy McCain's 2006 income tax return. Only two weeks ago, John McCain's wife vowed she would never make her tax information public.
The tax returns show that Mrs. McCain, who files her taxes separately from her husband, paid more than $1.7 million in federal income taxes and reported nearly $570,000 in itemized deductions.
Mrs. McCain's tax return shows nearly $350,000 in interest and dividend income, about $4.5 million in income from partnerships, trusts, rental real estate, and S corporations, and nearly $750,000 in income from capital gains. Mrs. McCain is the chairman of the board of Hensley & Co., the nation's third largest wholesaler of Anheuser-Busch products.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
