Senator Kamala Harris of California disclosed 15 years of tax returns on Sunday, providing a detailed picture of her finances. Several other Democratic presidential candidates have also released years of returns, and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has pledged to release 10 years of returns by Monday.

How Their Incomes Compare

Adjusted gross income Effective tax rate
Kamala Harris $1,889,156 37%
Elizabeth Warren $846,394 27%
Amy Klobuchar $299,446 21%
Kirsten Gillibrand $214,083 14%
Jay Inslee $202,912 15%

Notes: Income figures are in 2018 dollars and are from 2018 federal tax returns, except for Ms. Klobuchar’s, which is from 2017. All of the most recent returns used the status “married filing jointly.” Effective tax rate is calculated by dividing the total tax by adjusted gross income.

By allowing the public to see their taxes, the Democratic candidates are creating a contrast with President Trump, who defied tradition by refusing to disclose his taxes when he ran for president in 2016. This month, House Democrats requested Mr. Trump’s tax returns, bringing more attention to the issue.

The tax returns disclosed by the Democratic candidates show their salaries from government positions, such as serving as a governor or senator, as well as other income, including from investments and writing books.

The returns showed that in recent years, they earned substantially more than a vast majority of American households.
