Biden Releases Tax Returns Ahead of Debate With Trump
By Richard Rubin and Ken Thomas
Former Vice President Joe Biden released his 2019 tax returns on
Tuesday, showing that he paid nearly $300,000 in federal taxes,
seeking to draw a stark contrast with President Trump in the hours
before their first debate.
Mr. Biden and his wife, Jill, reported receiving $985,233 in
adjusted gross income in 2019, a year in which he was mostly
running for president.
Mr. Trump, meanwhile, has refused to release any of his tax
returns, breaking a 40-year tradition of major-party candidates and
presidents. The New York Times reported Sunday that Mr. Trump
hasn't paid federal income taxes in many recent years and paid just
$750 for 2016 and 2017. Mr. Trump has dismissed the Times'
reporting as inaccurate but has declined to specify any errors.
