Republican governor candidate Dan Rutherford paid more than $18,000 in taxes last year on an adjusted gross income of $114,145 in 2012, according to documents his campaign released Sunday.
 
Rutherford, elected four years ago as state treasurer, reported income from several sources that totaled $130,807. He also listed $16,662 in losses from business income, capital losses and from partnerships, trusts or rental real estate.
 
Like his three rivals for the Republican governor nomination, Rutherford did not provide schedules to detail the losses. After taking $41,885 in itemized deductions, Rutherford paid $13,301 in federal income taxes and $4,768 in state income taxes. Rutherford makes $135,700 a year as state treasurer, though he elected to have a portion of his annual salary deferred.
 
Rutherford was the last of the four GOP candidates to release his tax information. Rutherford also released tax information for his running mate, businessman Steve Kim, which showed the Northbrook attorney paid $648 in penalties to the state and federal government for underpaying his estimated tax liability.
 
Among the other Republican governor candidates, state Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale reported paying more than $76,000 in federal and state income taxes on an adjusted gross income of $259,907 for 2012.
 
State Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington, the unsuccessful 2010 GOP nominee for governor, released 2012 tax returns showing he paid more than $37,000 in state and federal income tax on $200,529 in income.
 
And Winnetka businessman Bruce Rauner, an equity investor, released tax details including documents showing he made $53 million last year and paid $10.1 million in federal income taxes in 2012.

The winner of the March 18 primary will face Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn in the November general election.
