COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina's Democratic nominee for governor has released his 2013 tax returns and again called on Gov. Nikki Haley to release more of hers.
Sen. Vincent Sheheen's total income last year was $333,000, while his taxable income was $306,000. Sheheen made nearly $110,000 more than in 2012, attributed to fluctuations in his business. Eighty-five percent of his income came from his law firm.
The returns provided Monday are in addition to the three years he released last year and 10 years' worth he released during his 2010 race against Haley.
Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey called Monday's release a political stunt.
In 2010, Haley let reporters view six years of returns following challenges by her opponents. She's since made returns available each spring but has yet to do so for 2013.
