This week, Michael J. Graetz ’61, Columbia Alumni Professor of Tax Law and Wilbur H. Friedman Professor of Tax Law, questions the secrecy behind Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s tax returns in his op-ed "The Mysteries of Mitt Romney's Financial Records" in The New York Times.

To date, Romney has only released his 2010 documents and there are concerns among the American people that he has been eschewing millions owed in taxes by using foreign bank accounts. Graetz lays out the possibilities for what we may find in Romney’s financial records, as well as what this will mean for the voters.
