BREAKING. Hillary Clinton Releases Her Income Tax Returns

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hillary Clinton has taken a step that Donald Trump will not take, she has made public her 2015 income tax return.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Friday released her 2015 tax return and disclosed a detailed list of speaking fees totaling nearly $23 million that she and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, together earned in 2013.

The release comes as Clinton seeks to apply pressure to Republican opponent Donald Trump, who has not released his tax returns, and sow doubt about the businessman’s honesty and civic participation. The tax issue allows Clinton to cast herself as forthcoming and honest, two attributes that many voters say they find lacking in her.

The Clinton campaign also released 10 years’ worth of returns for her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, and his wife, Anne Holton.

“Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine continue to set the standard for financial transparency as she releases her 2015 personal tax return,” campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri said Friday.

“In stark contrast, Donald Trump is hiding behind fake excuses and backtracking on his previous promises to release his tax returns. 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?”

What did she and Bill rake in?

The information shows that she and husband Bill Clinton paid an effective federal tax rate of 34.2 percent and an effective state and local tax rate of 9 percent, totaling a combined tax rate of 43.2 percent for last year, according to the Clinton campaign. For the federal taxes alone, the couple paid $3.6 million.

The Clintons’ 2015 joint tax return shows that their adjusted gross income was $10.6 million. That marks a significant drop from the year before when their adjusted gross income was $24.9 million in 2014. The drop is largely because Hillary Clinton stopped giving paid speeches when she launched her presidential campaign.

Donald Trump may continue to hide behind the bogus “audit” excuse but this it the kind of attention he doesn’t need. He and Hillary are both equally disliked but the American people think Hillary is dishonest to the bone (I have no idea why they would think that). Hillary releasing her tax returns while Trump refuses to is going to make her seem more honest at Trump’s expense. This is why Trump staffers were sniveling about losing every news cycle to Hillary. They are working for a narcissistic windbag who would set himself on fire if he thought it would get him attention.
