GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney could face new questions about his overseas investments after a campaign official acknowledged to NBC News that his campaign is revising his financial disclosure forms to report more than a half dozen offshore holdings, including income from a multi-million dollar Swiss bank account that were not disclosed last year.

NBC’s Michael Isikoff writes:

The tax returns released by the Romney campaign this week showed that the Ann Romney Blind Trust had reported $1,783 in interest income from a bank account held at UBS in Switzerland in 2010.

But the Swiss bank account – as well as other offshore investments in the Cayman Islands, Bermudas and Ireland that appear in the trust fund’s tax returns – were not disclosed in Romney’s financial disclosure form filed with the Office of Government Ethics last August.

The number and size of Romneys’ off shore investments have lately emerged as a major campaign issue, throwing the former Massachusetts governor on the defensive over his wealth-estimated at up to $250 million-and forcing his campaign to release his 2010 tax returns this week.
