The Inquirer requested copies of five years of federal income tax returns from Philadelphia’s five major Democratic mayoral candidates. Here is a summary of their responses:
U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah yesterday declined, citing his wife’s privacy wishes. He previously cited her confidentiality agreement with NBC10, where she is an anchorwoman. The station has waived that agreement, but Renee Chenault-Fattah says she wants her salary kept private.
State Rep. Dwight Evans gave copies of three years of tax returns to The Inquirer yesterday. They show his legislative salary – $86,521 in 2005, reflecting his status as ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee – and a few hundred dollars in interest and dividends.
U.S. Rep. Bob Brady provided returns for six years. He and his wife, Debra, reported federal adjusted gross income of $246,428 in 2005.
Former Councilman Michael Nutter supplied returns for five years. He and his wife, Lisa, reported income of $176,742 in 2006.
Businessman Tom Knox disclosed three years of tax returns for himself and his wife, Linda. They reported income totaling $18.8 million from 2003 to 2005 from investments, including the sale of the Fidelity Mutual Insurance Group to UnitedHealthcare in 2004.
