    He probably should, but just remember he's not yet an elected official.

    Would you vote for someone, esp. a president, that had a basic philosophy that his business dealings were "it is no one's business"? Maybe think about what would be reasonable and justifyable for voers to know, corectly, about a presidential canidate.

    OK, then once he is elected that is when we should know?

    I've commented a lot, but I don't think I've taken a position. I think that a canidate for office should, early on, be complete about his financial history. In MI we had a canidate that had off shore ownership of a logo that was essentially rented back to his corpperation. Nothing illegal about that, but I find it very revieling about how he might behave in office; and, I think other voters did also. Also, when looking at a canidates businesses, it was interesting to find that a business address, one of many associated with a canidate, when looked up on Google Maps street view was clearly inapropreate for the type of business. I couldn't find where the real HQ offices were.

    Wow, I feel fully informed now. (The obvious lack of completeness is very informative.)

    I have said it before - it is no one's business but his what he pays in taxes or what legal loopholes he uses.

    Please show me what law he has broken?

    And please show me where in the Constitution that it requires that a POTUS candidate must publicly release his tax records?

    If he has broken no laws and no rules on the subject - then he has done nothing wrong on the subject.

    I voted other.Only if all the other politicians and those running for office release tax records and financial holdings.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    According to your link Reagan, Bush Sr and Jr, Clinton and Carter didn't provide any returns during their presidential campaigns. If that's normal practice then what's the big deal about Romney's returns?

    Take away your perpetual CLASS ENVY card and you are really bankrupt. The right does every single thing it can to avoid facing itself in the mirror and admitting that many Americans simply see this sort of thing as rather unfair and outright unAmerican.
