— -- Hillary Clinton paid roughly $57 million in federal and state taxes on an income of more than $140 million over the last eight years, according to tax returns released by her campaign Friday night showing the break-out of her finances from 2007-2014.

According to the returns, Bill and Hillary Clinton made an income of $140,937,785 over the past years.

During that period, Clinton paid roughly $43 million in federal taxes and roughly $13 million in state taxes. She made roughly $15 million in charitable donations.

The amount Clinton paid in taxes stands in stark contrast to a remark Clinton made last year when she told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer that she and her husband, Bill Clinton, were “dead broke” when they left the White House.

Clinton, who made most of her income after leaving the State Department by giving paid speeches averaging $250k a pop, later said that she regretted making that statement, although insisted it was accurate.

In a statement released tonight, she reiterated that sentiment.

“We’ve come a long way from my days going door-to-door for the Children’s Defense Fund and earning $16,450 as a young law professor in Arkansas — and we owe it to the opportunities America provides,” Clinton said in the statement. “I want more Americans to have the chance to work hard and get ahead, just like we did. And reforming the tax code can help. We should be guided by some simple principles.”
