The Democrat also provided information on tax payments for 22 years.


Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden showed tax documents for 2019 before the debate with Donald Trump, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The newspaper writes that Biden paid about $ 300,000 in federal taxes last year. Joe and Jill Biden earned just over $ 985,000 in 2019.

The headquarters of the Democratic candidate said that after the publication of the tax return for 2019, Biden provided information on the payment of taxes for 22 years. During this period, he was a Senator from Delaware, Vice President of the United States.

According to Kate Bedingfield, deputy chief of staff, Biden has demonstrated “the historic level of transparency it takes to give the people of America back faith in its leaders.”

Over the weekend, The New York Times ran an article claiming that Trump had paid only $ 750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017. Also, NYT journalists claim that he has not paid income tax in 10 years.

Trump subsequently denied the information and argued that he could provide financial statements showing all of his property and assets since the re-election announcement.

The US presidential election is scheduled for November 3, 2020.
