Sen. Elizabeth Warren hauled in close to $1 million last year, she revealed in a 10-year dump of tax returns released Wednesday.
The Massachusetts Democrat, a progressive who’s advocated for a wealth tax and has made income equality a mainstay of her platform, earned $905,742, paid about $206,000 in taxes and owed a little more than $24,000 at the time of her 2018 filing, the Washington Examiner reported. She filed jointly with her husband, Harvard Law School professor Bruce Mann.
Warren’s returns also showed more than $4,000 in interest income alone from bank, the report said. The senator gave about $50,000 to charity, according to the returns, which can be viewed on her campaign site.
In releasing the documents, Warren joins fellow senators Amy Klobuchar and Kirsten Gillibrand as the few Democratic front runners who have opted to make their returns public, according to a running tally being kept by Mother Jones. Gov. Jay Inslee has also released his.
Sens. Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders have all slammed President Trump for failing to release his tax returns, but have yet to do so themselves. Sanders, who recently achieved millionaire status himself, told The New York Times that he would release his returns before tax day while calling for Trump to do the same.
