The presumptive Democratic nominee announced Harris would be his vice presidential pick on late Tuesday afternoon, saying on Twitter that Harris is a “fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants.”
Like Biden, Harris is also believed to be a millionaire.
GoBankingRates noted at the time that her financial disclosures for the Senate included two mortgages of $1 million held independently, though it’s unclear how much those mortgages add to Harris’ net worth.
Harris released her tax returns last year during her presidential campaign. She even took it a step further by publicizing her previous 15 years of returns.
Harris reported an income of about $157,000 in 2018 from her job as a senator, as well as more than $320,000 in net income as a writer. Harris had two books published at the beginning of 2019 -- “The Truths We Hold” and a children’s book called “Superheros are Everywhere.”
Her husband, Doug Emhoff, earned about $1.5 million as an attorney, according to their released tax returns. The documents also showed she and her husband had a federal tax bill of about $700,000 on an adjusted gross joint income of about $1.9 million last year.
Harris and her husband also reported giving a small portion of their income — often about 1 percent to 3 percent a year — to charitable causes. Harris reported no charitable contributions some years when she was California's attorney general. She joined Congress in 2017.
