Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) released 10 years of his tax returns on Monday as part of his 2020 presidential campaign.
The release of his returns came on the the deadline for taxpayers to file their 2018 returns.
The returns show that the adjusted gross income for Sanders and his wife, Jane, in 2018 was $561,293, and they paid a 26 percent effective tax rate.
The returns show earnings of more than $1 million over the last two years, reflecting Sanders’s recent acknowledgement that sales of his book have made him a millionaire.
In 2017, Sanders and his wife had adjusted gross income of $1,131,925 and an effective tax rate of 30.4 percent. In 2016, they had adjusted gross income $1,062,626 and an effective tax rate of 35 percent.
