Bernie Sanders released his 2014 federal tax return a day after Hillary Clinton questioned he hadn't done so -- a deflection of a question about why she wouldn't release her Wall Street speech transcripts. As Sanders predicted, there is not a lot of news there.
The 1040 form -- which was prepared by wife Jane Sanders -- shows the bulk of the couple's gross taxable income of $205,271 came from his senate salary. Sanders, 74, also was paid $46,000 from Social Security and $5,000 from a pension. After claiming $56,377 in deductions, the Sanders' paid $26, 961 in federal taxes for the year.
Sanders promises to release previous returns when his wife has time to track them down. No word on if and when Clinton has already released her previous 8 years of returns, although no word on if and when she might make her speech transcripts public. The Clinton's reported a gross adjusted income of $27.9 million in 2014.
