Many people are still waiting for President Trump to release his tax returns — some more than others — but add another Democratic presidential candidate to the list of politicians who have provided the public with a look into their personal finances.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and her husband, Doug Emhoff, on Sunday released 15 years of tax returns. The records cover every year since 2004 when Harris was elected district attorney of San Francisco. Per The Associated Press, Harris reported an income of about $157,000 from her job as a senator in 2018 and additional $320,000 in net income as a writer from a book she wrote which was published earlier this year entitled The Truths We Hold.
Harris’ decision follows Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.), who all released their tax returns since announcing their presidential candidacies. Other notable candidates including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg have all pledged to do so, as well, Politico reports.
