Via CNN:

Bernie and Jane Sanders earned nearly $206,000 in 2014 and paid about $28,000 in federal taxes, according to a tax return released by his campaign Friday night.

 

The return also shows that the couple earned nearly $46,000 in Social Security benefits.

 

Together, their total unadjusted gross earnings was $205,617. Most of the earnings came from Sanders’ $174,000 Senate salary, though Jane Sanders reported collecting $4,900 as a commissioner with the Texas Low Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Compact Commission.

 

The couple also reported donating $8,350 in gifts, though the seven-page return did not provide further detail.

 

Sanders did not immediately release a statement accompanying the return. But Jeff Weaver, his campaign manager, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on “Anderson Cooper 360” Friday night that “there’s not really much there to be trying to dump.”

 

“It’s just a question of getting it out,” he added.

 

The release upholds a pledge Sanders made at the CNN Democratic debate to release his 2014 taxes.

 

After Sanders knocked Hillary Clinton for not releasing transcripts of her speeches to Goldman Sachs during Thursday night’s debate, she fired back, asking when he was going to release his taxes. More
