Personal financial disclosure shows that U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris and her lawyer husband Douglas Emhoff are valued between $ 1.9 and $6 million.

President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden earned over $600,000 in gross annual income. In contrast, U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff earned around $1.7 million.

The majority of Harris and Emhoff's income - twice as much as Biden's - came from sources other than their salaries. Harris claimed to have made $452,664 as a writer, plus $319,000 from selling a San Francisco home with her husband.

Harris was paid $215,548 as vice president, and her husband, a Georgetown University professor, was paid $164,740. Emhoff also made $582,543 as a lawyer at DLA Piper and Venable, but he left when Harris was named vice president.

The Bidens, on the other hand, relied on their pay for the majority of their income. Jill Biden was paid $67,116 for her teaching job at Northern Virginia Community College, where she teaches English and writing. In contrast, President Biden was paid $378,333.

In their home state of Delaware, the Bidens paid federal taxes of $150,439 and state taxes of $30,765. Harris and her husband owe the government $523,371 in back taxes.

The public disclosure of income and taxes paid by the Biden-Harris administration contrasts sharply with the previous administration of President Donald Trump, who never revealed his taxes. According to Outlook, Trump paid no income tax in 11 of the 18 years covered by the papers.
