Following Sherman’s lead, Berman will release his tax return


Responding to a challenge issued by Rep. Brad Sherman (D - Sherman Oaks), who released his federal tax return a few days ago, Rep. Howard Berman (D - Van Nuys) will also release his federal tax return.

“Howard will accept Sherman’s challenge to release his taxes,” Brandon Hall, senior adviser to the Berman campaign, wrote in an email this morning. “We are working on the exact timing.”

It should also be noted that while Sherman, a former CPA embroiled in what is arguably the most closely watched congressional race of the year, attracted a decent amount of attention when he released his tax return (pdfs of parts 1 and 2), he’s hardly the only person running for congress to do so.

Parke Skelton, Sherman’s campaign consultant, also hit my email inbox this morning with a list of six links to candidates running for congress who have released their tax returns and challenged their rivals to do the same.

It appears that the trend of congressional candidates releasing their tax returns is bipartisan. Take a look for yourself if you’re curious:

Democratic candidate Keith Fitzgerald is running against Rep. Vern Buchanan (R - FL), Republican candidate Karen Harrington is challenging Democratic National Committee chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D - FL), Democratic candidate Pat Miles, is challenging Rep. Justin Amash (R - MI), Republican Michael Williams is running in a crowded Texas district, and Republican candidate Jim Pendergraph is running in another packed race in North Carolina.

In Rhode Island, meanwhile, one reporter was curious enough to call up everybody.

Now, where’s my CPA?
