Elizabeth Warren Releases Tax Returns Showing $900K Family Income in 2018

Presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released her 2018 tax returns Wednesday, disclosing more than $900,000 in family income. The total included $176,280 from her role in the Senate and $324,687 from her books. She and her husband, a Harvard Law School professor, paid $230,965 in taxes. This is the 11th year that Warren has released her returns. The disclosure comes after a number of Democratic hopefuls have released their financial information—a collective jab at President Trump, who has still refused to do so. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee have already released their tax returns; Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) pledged to do so by Apr. 15. “There’s a crisis of faith in government—and that’s because the American people think the government works for the wealthy and well-connected, not for them,” Warren said in a statement cited by the Post. “And they’re right. I’ve put out eleven years of my tax returns because no one should ever have to guess who their elected officials are working for. Doing this should be law.”
