Our presidential candidate tax return voyeurism has now been satisfied.
Cindy McCain, who previously released some of her 2006 filing data, last night made public a couple of pages of her 2007 return.
Mrs. McCain, heir to beer distributorship, paid almost $1.14 million in taxes during 2007 on income of more than $4 million.
She and husband, Republican presidential candidate John McCain, regularly file separate returns. The McCain campaign issued a statement noting that the missus, like many of us, received an extension to file until Oct. 15.
According to the return, around $2.9 million of Mrs. McCain's income came from "rental real estate, royalties, partnerships, S corporations, trusts, etc."
She also reported $746,000 in capital gains and a $297,000 salary.
Election year return roundup: With the release of Mrs. McCain's 2007 tax documents, political presidential personal tax transparency for this election year is complete.
