Ms. Nixon's wife, Christine Marinoni, earned $128,000 from the City of NY; she worked at the Education Department, resigning just before Ms. Nixon began her campaign.

Cuomo is 22 points ahead in this latest survey, the governor's narrowest lead in the contest across three statewide polls released since Nixon announced her candidacy.

She said physical copies of her tax returns would be made available to the media from 11 1 p.m., but that copies would not be provided. They also reported a net loss of $85,260 from rental properties they own, though one of those properties sold past year for a profit of $185,000.

Most of the income received by Nixon and her wife, Christine Marinoni, in 2017 was derived from investments, royalties and Nixon's work as an actor.

"New Yorkers have watched Andrew Cuomo cater to billionaires and corporations in return for huge donations, and then embarrass the nation by having his top aides go on multiple trials for political corruption", said Nixon senior strategist Rebecca Katz.

Nixon's campaign allowed reporters to review Nixon's tax documents on Friday.

Nixon and Marinoni also contributed more than $44,000 to charitable organizations via a family foundation they established to give out grants to organizations, according to the Democrat and Chronicle.

The foundation's 2017 return shows that it gave money to disparate groups - such as those fighting cystic fibrosis, doing nonprofit theater and the Girl Scouts - including $15,000 to the Public Policy and Education Fund, which is an affiliate of Citizen Action of NY.

Nixon recently came under fire for not releasing her tax returns. Extensions typically last six months, so Nixon would not have to file a detailed tax return until mid-October, after the September primary.

Marc Molinaro, the presumptive Republican candidate for governor, released his tax returns for 2017, but his opponent, incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo, raised the stakes, saying his GOP challenger should release 10 years of tax returns. Molinaro released his tax return on Thursday.

"The transparency to me is the main issue", Cuomo said. One of them - a condo on the eastern end of Long Island - was sold a year ago for $575,000, resulting in a gain of $185,786.
