Linda McMahon releases family’s 2011 tax returns, earnings of $24 million

 
 

After unveiling her 2010 tax returns to the Associated Press a few weeks ago, Linda McMahon released the 2011 tax returns for her family after continued pressure from her opponents.

In 2011, Vince and Linda McMahon earned a total of $24.1 million, and while that’s quite a lot, it’s a $6 million drop from their 2010 earnings. There will be an amendment to the report as the couple are still waiting for two missing documents regarding investment income. McMahon didn’t want to file her return before everything was in order but was advised to file and amend later.
