ABC News’ Kate Snow, Eloise Harper and Avni Patel report: Call them the Cha-Ching Clintons. 

Since leave office, former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., reported $109 million in gross income to the Internal Revenue Service for the years 2000-2007, according to a release from the Clinton campaign.

On that amount, they reportedly paid $33.7 million in taxes at a rate of 31% — a rate that is much higher than the average rate of 20.8% for that tax bracket.

They have filed an extension on their 2007 taxes.

The Clinton family donated $10.2 million to charity, or 9.5% of their adjusted gross income, including $1 million in proceeds from the former President’s book "Giving".

Some of the most significant sources of Clinton income: $10.4 million off her books, $29.5 million off his books, and a whopping $51.8 million for speeches given by Bill Clinton.
