Working life: The couple’s combined income was almost $620,000 last year, an increase of 7 percent from the previous year. This is shown in the tax returns that the Biden couple submitted on Monday.

Four-fifths of the Biden couple’s income came from Joe Biden’s job as president and Jill Biden’s job as a teacher at Northern Virginia Community College.

The other part of the income comes from interest income from investments, a pension and a remuneration scheme for book publications. The share of federal tax on Joe Biden’s income was about the same level as the previous year.

The tax returns also show that the Biden couple donated 20,477 dollars, just over 223,000 kroner, to charity. Several churches were among the recipients, as well as the epilepsy organization Epilepsy Foundation and the police association Fraternal Order of Police.

Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Douglas Emhoff’s tax returns show a combined income of $450,380, about $4.9 million, and federal taxes of $88,570, just over $966,000, for 2023.

Former President Donald Trump has once again refused to produce his tax return.
