Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign published Tuesday Biden tax returns for 2019 hours before his first debate against President Donald Trump. His campaign also urged Trump, who has come under attack for not publishing his returns, to do the same.

Biden is about to share the stage with Trump on Tuesday night in Cleveland. Meanwhile, he took action two days after the New York Times announced that Trump paid only $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017. It also added that he paid nothing in 10 of the past 15 years. This is after years of disclosing steep losses from company firms.

For a long time, Trump has tried to keep secret his personal financial records.


Biden Tax return

Biden’s returns revealed that they said he had overpaid the government before requesting a refund of roughly $47,000. Biden and his wife Jill paid over $346,000 in federal taxes and other fees for 2019 from an income of approximately $985,000.

This is a historical degree of honesty intended to give once again the American people confidence that their leaders will watch out for them and not their own bottom lines, “Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager of Biden, stated on a call with reporters.”

“Mr. President, release your tax returns or shut up,” Bedingfield added.

The risks are immense as the two White House contenders take the stage five weeks from the Nov. 3 runoff, with over a million Americans now casting early ballots and time burning out to change minds or sway the slim sliver of undecided voters.

The debate will last 90-minute, with a small audience that will observe social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The debate will start by 9 p.m. EDT (0100 GMT on Wednesday) at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. Meanwhile, Chris Wallace of Fox News acting will act as a moderator. This is the first of three debates planned.
