Scott Brown, Elizabeth Warren Keep Promise To Release Tax Returns In Massachusetts Senate Race

Posted: Updated:

Massachusetts Senate candidates Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown released their tax returns for the past several years on Friday, in response to a request from the Boston Globe.

Brown's returns show that Republican incumbent's family income rose significantly after he won his special election for Senate in 2010, jumping from $294,000 in 2009 to almost $840,000 a year later.

Brown released six years worth of tax returns, while Warren released four. Warren's returns show that she and her husband earned nearly $1 million over the past four years, putting her in the top 1 percent of earners, the Globe reports.

Brown has attempted to portray Warren as a member of the elite during the campaign, attacking her for an interest-free loan the Harvard law professor received from the school, as well as her decision to pay a lower tax rate on her most recent Massachusetts tax return.

Brown's earnings, however, put him in the top 2 percent.

The Massachusetts Senate race has been predicted to be the most expensive in the state's history. It has already become one of the more closely watched races in the nation.
