Bernie Sanders Releases two thousand fourteen Tax Return

VT Sen. Bernie Sanders released his two thousand fourteen tax returns Friday, showing that he and his wife had a total household income of $205.617.

Sanders released the tax return a day after being challenged to do so by Hillary Clinton at Thursday'south Democratic debate in Brooklyn, which came after Clinton was questioned about releasing transcripts of her paid speeches.

The tax returns indicate the Sanders household paid $9.666 in state income tax and $31.825 in federal income tax, and received a federal refund of $4.172.

The documents also indicate charitable contributions of $8.350. The household income includes a tiny more than $46.000 in Social Security benefits and business income of $4.900.

At the debate, Sanders said he'd release the two thousand fourteen returns on Friday, which is traditionally tax day (Taxes are due on Monday, April eighteen this year).

Sanders had already released on year of tax returns. He faced questions over releasing more years as he questioned Hillary Clinton'south paid speeches and called for her to release transcripts.

On Sunday, Sanders told NBC'south "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd that more years would be released, and added: "Trust me, there is nothing that's going to surprise anybody."

Clinton said Thursday that she'd release transcripts of her paid speeches if all the other candidates do the same.
