COLUMBUS: All the major candidates running for governor appear to enjoy comfortable incomes, according to tax returns they revealed last week. But each of their earnings paled compared to Republican Mike DeWine’s.

Almost all the major gubernatorial candidates have shown reporters their returns this week, following DeWine, the first to begin the paperwork rush.

Former congressman Dennis Kucinich was the only one who hasn’t shared his returns, but they are coming this week, his spokesman said.

DeWine and his wife reported earning $634,975 last year. Mary Taylor, his rival in the GOP primary, reported earning $97,197, in her 2017 return.

The 2017 tax return of Democrat Richard Cordray and his wife showed they paid just over $58,000 in federal income taxes on almost $298,000 of income in 2017 — a tax rate of 19.5 percent.

Joe Schiavoni, a Democratic state senator from Boardman, filed taxes jointly with his wife, Margaret Potts, a nurse anesthetist. In the couple’s 2017 tax return, they reported a gross income of $207,518 for the previous year.

Bill O’Neill, a Democratic former Ohio Supreme Court justice, released his tax return only for 2017, showing a gross income of $254,844 — earnings from the bench, in pensions and annuities and in Social Security. He paid $51,893 in state and federal income taxes and his federal tax rate was 17.3 percent.
