Clinton Net Worth & Income

Based on her 2015 U.S. Public Financial Disclosure Reports, Secretary Clinton is worth anywhere between $10.83 million and $51.7 million. The wide gap is due to FEC’s reporting method which breaks down assets and income values into wide bands, e.g., $15,001-$50,001 or $250,001-$500,000.

Secretary Clinton’s largest source of income in her declaration is the royalties for her book, Hard Choices, which falls under the “Over $5,000,000” category. Her largest assets, meanwhile, is a JP Morgan account and a Vanguard investment fund which falls under the $5,000,001-$25,000,000 category. Her declaration also includes fees for 104 speaking engagements attended by both Secretary Clinton and her husband.

Her campaign also released a copy of her 2014 federal tax returns, filed jointly with her husband. The document showed that the couple had a gross income of $27,946,490 for the year. The document also revealed that the Clintons owned 3 residential properties and a single non-residential property.

Excerpt from a statement issued by Secretary Clinton after the release of her federal tax returns:

“Today, I’m releasing my own family’s tax returns from 2007 to 2014, adding those years to previous releases going back to 1977. Since 2007, we have paid $43,885,310 in federal taxes and made $14,959,450 in charitable contributions. We’ve also paid $13,625,777 in state and local income taxes. Last year, we paid an effective federal tax rate of 35.7 percent and a combined federal, state, and local effective rate of 45.8 percent. We contributed 10.8 percent of our income to charity. In 2013, the numbers were similar. We paid an effective federal tax rate of 35.4 percent and a combined rate of 44.6 percent, and donated 11.4 percent of our income to charity.”

Trump Net Worth & Income

Mr. Trump is worth approximately between $1.25 and $10 billion. The huge gap is due to the lack of publicly-available data on Mr. Trump’s assets and income streams, and his inability to release his Federal Income Tax Returns owing to pending IRS examinations.

The most extensive and detailed public record of Mr. Trump’s wealth can be found in his 2015 U.S. Public Financial Disclosure Report, filed with the Federal Election Commission. However, the report has an inbuilt limitation as assets and incomes values are pegged into wide bands (e.g., $100,001 - $250,000) and has an upper limit of $50 million per item.

So, while we may learn that Mr. Trump has interest in 515 companies, the value of his holdings are sometimes difficult to determine. For instance, the value of the 70-story and 1.3 million-square-foot Trump Building (40 Wall Street) in the heart of New York's financial district, which Mr. Trump purchased for less than $8 million in 1995, is recorded at “Over $50,000,000.” And yet, the skyscraper is valued between $300 and $400 million today. Similarly, the value of Trump National Golf Club Jupiter in Florida, Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach and the 230-acre Seven Springs estate in Albany, New York, are all capped at $50,000,000.

Conversely, his liabilities are also pegged at the $50,000,000 level. His liabilities to mortgage lenders Ladder Capital, Capital One and Deutsche Bank Trust are each recorded at “Over $50,000,000.”

However, if we based our calculations strictly on individual bands cap, Mr. Trump assets and liabilities are valued at $1,700,050,000 billion and $450,750,000 respectively, giving his holdings a net value of $1,249,300,000. This figure is definitely not accurate, but it does provide a minimum baseline of his net worth. It also makes him the richest presidential candidate ever, and if elected to the White House, he will also be the richest president in American history!

The $10 billion valuation, meanwhile, comes directly from Mr. Trump himself. In a press release issued on July 15, 2015 shortly after filing his financial disclosure with the FEC, his campaign noted that:
“Mr. Trump's net worth has increased since the more than one year old financial statement produced at his presidential announcement. Real estate values in New York City, San Francisco, Miami and many other places where he owns property have gone up considerably during this period of time. His debt is a very small percentage of value, and at very low interest rates. As of this date, Mr. Trump's net worth is in excess of TEN BILLION DOLLARS.”

Third-party estimates of Mr. Trump’s fortune ranges from $2.9 billion (Bloomberg) to $4.1 billion (Forbes) and $4.5 billion (Wealth-X).
