What Do Bernie Sanders’ Tax Returns Reveal?

Hillary Clinton has been challenging Bernie Sanders to release his tax returns. He just released his 2014 returns, but what do they reveal? Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.

Do you think Bernie Sanders is hiding anything in his tax returns? Let us know in the comments below.

Read more here: presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who has made income inequality a top campaign theme, had taxable income of $205,271 in 2014, putting him almost in the top 5 percent of American earners, according to the release of Friday of his federal tax return.

That figure was still far below the millions earned by his main Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, in recent years.

Sanders and his wife, Jane, paid $27,653 in federal income taxes in 2014, an effective federal tax rate of 13.5 percent, on income of $205,271, which is their adjusted gross income before deductions. That figure is just below the $206,563 that Census data show as the lower limit for the top 5 percent of U.S. households in 2014.”
