Today on Fox News Sunday, Mitt Romney said he would release his 2010 tax return (along with an estimate of his 2011 taxes) on Tuesday.

Fox’s Chris Wallace pressed Romney on why he would only release two years of returns when his father released twelve during his run for President. Romney said he wouldn’t release as many tax returns as his father did because that was “before the internet.” Watch it:

Romney’s answer seems to suggest that he won’t release more returns because, in the internet age, they will be subject to increased scrutiny. Two days ago, Romney said he would not release his tax returns until April because he didn’t want to give “a nice little present” to the Democrats.

In late December, Romney said he would not release any tax returns at all.
