Kirsten Gillibrand is the first presidential candidate to release her 2018 tax returns

Vox reports that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a candidate for the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination, has published her personal income tax returns for the past 10 years, 2007 through 2018.

 

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Wednesday became the first candidate in the 2020 field to release her 2018 tax returns, and in doing so, she pressed the other contenders in the already very crowded field to follow suit.

“For public servants, releasing your tax returns shows the American people that you work only for them, not the powerful,” she said in a statement. “I’m proud to be the first presidential candidate to release my latest returns, and take that critical step towards transparency.”

Other candidates in the Democratic primary, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, have previously released some portion of their tax history — Warren more than Sanders — but both have yet to disclose their 2018 filings. (It’s possible candidates have yet to fully complete their 2018 taxes since the filing deadline isn’t until April 15.)
