Rauner: 'We've Paid Full Taxes as Appropriate'
The candidate for Illinois governor was asked Friday about a Chicago Tribune report last week. It showed business income-loss tax rules allowed Rauner to pay no Social Security or Medicare taxes in those years despite income of $55 million.
Rauner told reporters in Springfield that "we've paid full taxes as appropriate." Asked whether the exemption is fair to all wage-earners, he said: "We can talk about how we should reform our tax code." He says that discussion is forthcoming.
Rauner's opponent - Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn - has repeatedly called on Rauner to release his complete tax records.
