Daily Finance – The Bidens also filed a joint federal tax return, as well as a combined Delaware income tax return. In addition, Dr. Biden filed a separate non-resident Virginia tax return. The Vice President and his wife reported adjusted gross income of $385,072 and paid $87,851 in federal tax. They also paid $13,531 and $3,593 in state income tax to Delaware and Virginia, respectively, and gave $7,190 to charity.
This is the Vice President of the US, his gross income is nearing 400k, he is given practically everything, and all he can afford to give to charity is $7,190!!!!! He is supposed to be setting an example with this number. If I were to sit down with Biden I’m sure there are plenty of reasons (excuses) for why this number is the way it is but don’t you think that out of all the smart people surrounding him that they might consider what the public would think about this lowly number? I have to imagine that this number is low because he compensates it with how much money he raises for other organizations. Nevertheless, if Biden can only give 1.8% of his gross income away, I don’t feel so bad with what I gave.
