Bernie Sanders' Tax Returns Show He's Now A Millionaire

Bernie Sanders’ campaign escalates feud with top liberal think tank

Sanders, Warren and Harris rank farthest to the left on the Yahoo Finance socialist-capitalist index, which evaluates candidate positions on health care, climate change, trade and taxes.

From canapé-filled fund-raisers on the coasts to the cloakrooms of Washington, mainstream Democrats are increasingly anxious that their effort to defeat President Trump in 2020 could be complicated by Mr. Sanders, in a political scenario all too reminiscent of how Mr. Trump himself seized the Republican nomination in 2016.

Since then, he has written two campaign-oriented books: Our Revolution in November 2016 and Where We Go From Here in November 2018.

Sanders made clear that strong opposition to the 2017 $1.5 trillion tax cut - which no Democrat in Congress supported - will be at the center of his second bid for the presidency.

In 2009, the first year of returns Sanders released on Monday, he had an adjusted gross income of $314,742.

His 2015 income was substantially less, at $240,622, the returns showed. The couple gave US$36,300 to charity in 2017. Sanders said to the moderators at the event in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The campaign did not say how much was given in that case.

In a statement accompanying the release, Sanders said that the returns show that his family has been "fortunate", something he is grateful for after growing up in a family that lived paycheck to paycheck. She and her husband paid $231,000 in federal taxes in 2018, for an effective tax rate of 27%.

He said: "His request is a transparent effort by one political party to harass an official from the other party because they dislike his politics and speech".

He has previously released his 2014 tax return and published it on his website, which included a full list of itemized deductions. The tax returns are from 2009 to 2018. They also had a business income of $4,900. All of the other returns have typed entries.

But among presidential candidates, Jeb Bush still holds the modern-day record for the size of a total tax release.

The release comes amid continued pressure on billionaire President Donald Trump to show his tax returns.

The president of a nonpartisan public policy organization on Tuesday warned that the proposed policies being campaigned on by 2020 Democratic presidential primary hopeful Sen. Trump has repeatedly said he will not because he's under audit, though Democrats have not retreated from the issue.

Sanders' personal wealth has come under heightened scrutiny in recent weeks.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who far out-raised other Democrats in the first quarter by bringing in nearly $18.2 million, received an average of about $443,568 per day. "But instead he just is really defensive, it's not a crime to write a book, and I don't know where that's coming from, or how that serves him".

He has spent years railing against the excesses of the wealthiest Americans, but Sen.

Defending the earnings, he said: "Anyone who thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I'm sorry, I'm not going to do it".

On Monday, Sanders took a more measured tone in releasing his returns, making reference to his upbringing in a Brooklyn family of limited financial resources. For example, the disclosure form only requires that income and debts be described in wide ranges, and does not report the value of real estate.

He called it the "Bernie question", adding it "comes up in every fund-raising meeting I do". Sanders was first elected to the Senate in 2006 and served in the House for 16 years before that.

Sanders, 77, faces competition from a large Democratic primary field dominated by candidates who may have more appeal with the party's rising base of young people, non-white voters and women.

Sanders also defended his new millionaire status. Podesta did not respond to a request for comment. We do not suggest, edit, approve or see their stories before publishing. At the town hall, the Fox co-hosts asked him if he would donate more money to the IRS, and these two lines of attack will undoubtedly follow him all campaign.

Warren is the most generous of the 7 Democrats who have publicized their tax returns, with more than $50,000 in charitable donations in 2018. Hey, President Trump, my wife and I just released 10 years.
