MITT ROMNEY LIES AGAIN: "John Kerry released [only] two years of taxes."
Senator John Kerry released
TWENTY (20) YEARS OF TAXES.
KUDLOW: Why not release your tax returns? Why not go back 10 years?
Gov. ROMNEY: Well, we’ve had people run for president before, and they’ve released two years. John Kerry released two years of taxes.. I’ve released one already, put the
estimate out for the next year. We’ll have two years of taxes..

In fact, Senator Kerry made a habit of releasing tax returns to the Massachusetts press during his senate campaigns. In 1996 and 1997, for instance, The Boston Globe ran stories on Mr. Kerry’s returns. During his 2004 presidential campaign, it looks as though Mr. Kerry released tax returns for the years 1999 to 2003.
In addition to his 2003 returns, Kerry also released
federal tax returns from the years 1999 to 2002 yesterday. There has
been some dispute about returns for those years. Kerry has claimed that
he had already released the returns — in January of this year, he said, “I released all my tax returns for 20 years. I have never not released my tax returns throughout my political career.”
But aside from releasing details from his 2002 taxes — which showed a
total income of $144,091 — it is not clear that Kerry has ever made
public his returns from 1999 or 2000 or 2001 before now.
