Tax Returns for Presidential Candidates & Presidents

All tax returns are private and information cannot be released by the IRS.

Presidents and presidential candidates are not required to release their tax returns.

Since the 1970s most presidents have chosen to release their returns publicly. In the hope of making this information more widely available, the Tax History Project at Tax Analysts has compiled an archive of presidential tax returns. In addition, they have made available returns from recent candidates for president, including those running in party primaries. Some returns are incomplete and only contain the first 2 pages. Some returns are Federal only.

Right now, the only 2020 Presidential Candidate who has released her tax return is Elizabeth Warren, who has released her complete 2008-2017 Federal and state tax returns.

From 2013 to 2017, the Warrens’ joint income has been roughly $1 million a year (on one return I did see $1.6 million which included her making $1 million in business income on top of her wages as a Senator)
