She was the first of the 2020 Democrats to reveal her 2018 tax returns in March, which showed she paid $29,710 in federal taxes on an adjusted income of about $214,000. Her tax returns from 2007 to 2018 are also posted on her Senate website.
Her income included her nearly $168,000 Senate salary and a $50,000 book payment for her children’s book “Bold & Brave” — about ten women who fought for the right to vote, released in November 2018 — according to her 2018 Senate financial disclosure documents, which she filed in May.
Her income also included a $3,000 capital gains loss. The capital loss was carried over from investments made in previous years, campaign spokeswoman Meredith Kelly said in March.
The 2018 return lists only one holding, Wind Crest LLC, a medical services company that is an inactive investment vehicle. Gillibrand's financial disclosures have shown a $15,000 to $50,000 investment in the company.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Gillibrand has a net worth of $600,000. However, an estimate from OpenSecrets.org put Gillibrand's total worth at about $498,502 back in 2015, ranking her at the lower end of U.S. senators' net worth, according to the site.
