Christie, wife paid $141K in income taxes for 2011
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - October 18, 2012 (WPVI) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and his wife paid just over $141,000 in income taxes for 2011 on a combined adjusted gross income of just over $567,000.
The governor's office released the Christies' joint 2011 income tax filing Thursday afternoon. The documents were filed with the Internal Revenue Service on Monday, after a six-month extension.
Mary Pat Christie is an investment banker who works part time. She earned nearly twice as much as her husband, a first-term Republican.
The returns show the couple paid $37,585 in property taxes on their Mendham home, gave $26,224 to charity and paid $19,830 for child care.
Their deductions totaled $109,167.
Prior tax returns show the couple earned $449,607 in 2010 and $544,047 in 2009.
Christie urged GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney to make his tax returns public earlier in the campaign.
