JEFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Democratic gubernatorial candidate Chris Koster has released four years of tax returns, showing his income has declined during his recent term as attorney general.
Koster’s tax returns show an adjusted gross income of nearly $241,000 in 2012, more than half of which came from investments.
That declined to nearly $172,000 in 2013 as he began a second four-year-term in office, about $136,000 in 2014 and nearly $114,000 in 2015 as his investment income tapered off. His 2015 income consisted mainly of his attorney general’s salary.
Koster released his tax returns at the request of The Associated Press and other media.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Eric Greitens has said he will release tax information but has not yet done so.
Koster’s tax returns show he claimed hardly any deductions for charitable giving.
