Sanders reported earning over $850,000 as an author in 2017 and almost $800,000 as an author in 2016.

'My view has always been that we need a progressive tax system which demands that the wealthiest people in this country finally start paying their fair share of taxes, ' he said.

"Bernie Sanders has been filing detailed financial disclosures for nearly 30 years, and he is proud to voluntarily make these tax returns available many months before the election, " said campaign manager Faiz Shakir.

Trump has continued to ignore calls to release his returns, and House Democrats are now trying to use their majority power to obtain the documents from the Internal Revenue Service.

His effective tax rates in 2016 and 2017, his other high-earning years, were 35 percent and 30 percent, respectively. Most other Democratic contenders have pledged to do the same soon. Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker.

But among presidential candidates, Jeb Bush still holds the modern-day record for the size of a total tax release. Harris released 15 years of tax returns over the weekend.
