Over the past five years, the couple has paid over $2.2 million in federal taxes at an average effective tax rate of about 33 percent. He made just over $1 million in 2016 and $1.1 million in 2017, the years that his books hit the shelves.

"W$3 hile still early in the nominating process", Kimball added, "it looks like Mayor Pete is the candidate capturing voters' imagination; the numbers had him at 0 percent in mid-February, three percent in March, and now at nine percent in April". Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday night. Most other Democratic contenders have pledged to do the same soon. It included clips of Sanders criticising the influence of "millionaires and billionaires" alongside a chart showing how he became a millionaire through his books sales. "We wanted to do 10 years and so we had (an internal) conversation saying, 'let's just do it all at once so we have the most recent one'".

In a recent op-ed, he outlined his now-familiar promise to take on the "powerful special interests" stemming from "the greed of Wall Street, the power of big multinational corporations and the influence of the global billionaire class".

He said that his view has always been that the wealthiest Americans ought to pay more taxes.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA, who has also made anti-corruption a key focus of her campaign, reported the next highest income out of the six Democrats who have released at least a decade of returns, showing an adjusted gross income between her and her husband of over $846,000.

Beto O'Rourke, the former congressman from Texas, released 10 years of his returns on Monday night.

Democratic presidential candidate, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota - have released tax records to varying degrees. The tax returns are from 2009 to 2018.


"We're seeing more returns, and sooner, than ever before", Rosenthal told ABC News.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Sanders released his 2014 tax returns and said he would release more if he earned the nomination.

He has previously released his 2014 tax return and published it on his website, which included a full list of itemized deductions.

President Donald Trump did not release any of his tax returns during the campaign and has yet to show any signs he will do so ahead of the 2020 election. "If anyone thinks that I should apologize for writing a best-selling book, I'm sorry, I'm not going to do it". Instead of paying $16.4 billion in taxes at the 21 percent statutory corporate tax rate, these companies enjoyed a net corporate tax rebate of $4.3 billion, according to a study by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP).

Sanders also defended his new millionaire status.

I didn't know that it was a crime to write a good book which turns out to be a bestseller. "If I make a lot of money, you make a lot of money, that is what I believe", said Sanders. You can read the full tax returns in the story below. Trump has repeatedly said he will not because he's under audit, though Democrats have not retreated from the issue.

On the Senate side, Warren recently introduced a bill that would force candidates to release their tax returns by law.
