ATLANTA, GA- Former Dollar General CEO and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate David Perdue has challenged his opponents, Republicans and Democrats, to follow his lead and release 10 years of tax returns. Recent media reports show that Perdue has been more transparent about his personal finances than any other candidate in the race.
“This is a critical election, and I believe every candidate owes the voters nothing less than full transparency before the May 20th Primary,” said Perdue. “As a first-time candidate and political outsider, I have put everything out there so people can make up their own minds. It’s time for the career politicians to do the same thing.”
Perdue made 10 years of tax returns available for media inspection last week. The media review found that he paid an effective federal income tax rate of 38% on his earnings over the past decade.
In providing hundreds of pages of tax documents, Perdue allowed the entire return to be reviewed, including the forms, schedules, and statements. Only social security and account numbers were redacted. Perdue is asking for the same level of transparency from his opponents.
