D.C. council candidate Frumin releases tax returns

D.C. Council candidate Matthew Frumin released his 2012 tax return on Wednesday, the second candidate in Tuesday’s at-large election to make the information public.

Frumin, an international trade attorney, reported $324,253 in income. He paid about $61,000 in federal taxes and $21,386 in District taxes.

Frumin, a Democrat, reported a total of $71,000 in deductions, including $12,075 in charitable donations.

Frumin released his tax returns after Washington City Paper columnist Alan Suderman asked the candidates to make their returns public. Suderman noted two former council members - Harry Thomas Jr. and Kwame R. Brown - were forced to step down from the council after facing criminal charges related to their personal finances.

“I committed to releasing my tax returns in order to promote transparency among elected officials in DC government,” Frumin said.

Democratic candidate Elissa Silverman released her 2012 return on Tuesday.

Tim Craig is The Post’s bureau chief in Pakistan. He has also covered conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and within the District of Columbia government.
