WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (KEER'-sten JIHL'-uh-brand) has released her tax returns for 2018, showing she paid $29,170 in federal taxes on an income of about $214,000.

The New York Democrat on Wednesday became the first presidential candidate to disclose the latest tax filing. Her income included her $167,000 Senate salary, a $50,000 book payment and a $3,000 capital gains loss.

Gillibrand's move comes as many of her rivals for their party's 2020 nomination to take on President Donald Trump have yet to share their own tax return data, even as Democrats continue to slam Trump for not releasing his returns during his 2016 run for president.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has released 10 years of her tax returns but not her 2018 filing. Other Democratic candidates have yet to share as much tax information.
