2020 hopeful Beto O'Rourke releases 10 years of tax returns

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke has released 10 years of his tax returns through 2017 and is promising to release last year's after he files them

WASHINGTON -- Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday released 10 years of his tax returns, with the most recent filing showing that he and his wife earned more than $360,000 in income.

Encompassing 2008 through 2017, the hundreds of pages of returns show that the former Texas congressman and his wife, Amy, had a total annual income of more than $330,000 from 2015 to 2017. His effective tax rate for 2017 was 22%.

In 2008, their joint income was around $280,000.

In a statement, O'Rourke's campaign said it would be making his 2018 tax returns public "as soon as possible after they are filed."

Sanders' release of 10 years of tax returns confirmed that his income crossed the $1 million threshold in 2016 and 2017.

That meant the onetime punk rocker was actually wealthier than Sen. Ted Cruz, the Republican he challenged in deeply conservative Texas and nearly upset in November.
