Well, Hillary Clinton had a very good 2015 income-wise!
On Friday Clinton released her 2015 tax return, in her latest bid to up the pressure on rival Donald Trump to follow suit. It shows the Clintons had an adjusted gross income of $10,594,529, a majority of which came from paid speeches by her husband, Bill Clinton, and also included $3 million in book royalties. and paid an effective federal tax rate of 34.2 percent, according to a summary provided by the campaign. They donated 9.8 percent to charity.
Vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine released 10 years worth of returns showing he paid 20.3 percent in 2015.
Clinton has previously released her tax returns from 2007-14, as well as her returns from her previous White House bid and from during her husband’s administration.
“Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine continue to set the standard for financial transparency as she releases her 2015 personal tax return and builds on the Clintons’ tradition of making their returns public since 1977,” said Jennifer Palmieri, communications director for the Clinton campaign, in a statement.
“In stark contrast, Donald Trump is hiding behind fake excuses and backtracking on his previous promises to release his tax returns,” Palmieri added. “He has failed to provide the public with the most basic financial information disclosed by every major candidate in the last 40 years. What is he trying to hide?”
True. What is Trump trying to hide?
