Paul Ryan released his family’s tax returns for 2010-2011.

The vice presidential candidate and his wife paid a tax rate of 15.9% in 2010 and 20% in 2011.

Romney has not yet released two years of tax returns. He released his 2010 return (with some elements missing) and an estimate for 2011. The campaign has said that a full 2011 return will be made public before the election.
