TAX SEASON: Governor, First Lady Release Returns
Governor Branstad released his tax returns at the Capitol Wednesday.
Together with the First Lady, Chris, they reported nearly $235,000 in income last year.
The governor’s salary only accounts for more than half of that bringing in just over $119,000.
The rest comes from state pension payments, work done before he returned to office and investments.
The couple paid more than $43,000 in federal and state income taxes.
