Former Gov. Jeb Bush will release 33 years of tax returns later this afternoon or early evening on his campaign website.
"This is more than any presidential candidate in the history of the United States," said a campaign spokeswoman Allie Brandenburger. "This display of transparency is consistent with the high level of disclosure he has practiced during his life in public office."
When Bush ran for governor, he released his tax returns dating back to 1981. Bush was governor from January 1999 through January 2007 so the new information in today's release will cover the period since he left office.
