The Globe noted that Gomez did not release returns going back to 2005, the year in which he claimed a nearly $300,000 tax deduction on his home, which has historical significance. The tax deductions has spurred attacks in the state.

During the primary, Gomez released a five-year overview of his returns that claimed he paid a 20 percent tax rate and brought in $8.5 million.
