Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has released returns showing him paying about $89,000 in taxes for 2012. Dayton released his tax returns on Tuesday, following his routine of doing so since he was a candidate in 2010. Overall Dayton earned $343,000 last year. More of his money came from dividends and capital gains than from his gubernatorial salary of $120,000. His taxable income after deductions came to about $299,000, and his return showed him giving $1,000 to charity. Minnesota law doesn’t require the release tax information by officials, but some have done so voluntarily. State Senator Dave Thompson, who is among several GOP candidates for governor, also released his forms on Tuesday. They showed a family income of over $198,000, a total tax bill of about $40,000, and $20,000 in charitable giving.
