Buttigieg, the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and an emerging star in the crowded democratic primary field, has published 10 years of tax returns – from 2009 to 2018 – on his campaign website.
"Mayor Pete has always followed the rules," said Buttigieg's campaign in an email. "He has paid his fair share, and he does not have much investment, that is, no conflicts of interest or supervisory board mandates, and unlike the current president, he has nothing to hide."

The candidates are filing their tax returns to speak with Trump, who is standing in front of him In 2016, the first major party nominee for decades has not released any of his tax returns.
Trump has said that he will not release his tax returns during the exam, though the IRS has said that nothing prevents the liberation of people's own tax information.
Buttigieg's tax return from 2018 shows that he and his husband Chasten had a gross income of $ 152,643 and a total tax rate of $ 20,136 at an effective tax rate of 13.2 percent. They demanded the standard deduction of $ 24,000.
The pair's adjusted gross income for 2018 is roughly equivalent to Booker's adjusted gross income for 2018, lower than the income reported in the 2018 earnings of all other Democratic presidential candidates. Booker, who is unmarried and the only candidate who can not release a joint return with a spouse by 2018, reported significantly lower earnings in 2018 than in previous years when he had income from his book.
Buttigieg and his husband married in 2018, the last tax return being the first in which they filed together.
In 2017, Buttigieg had adjusted the gross income of $ 133,565 – including income from his civil status and writing – and the total tax of $ 28,830. He demanded a one-off deduction of $ 11,542, including $ 765 in charitable donations.
All buttigieg tax returns show adjusted gross income of less than $ 200,000 for the year, and in several years reported adjusted gross income of less than $ 100,000. In 2014, when he did not receive his mayoral salary during his service in Afghanistan, Buttigieg had adjusted the gross income of $ 46,150. When he first ran for the mayor of South Bend in 2011, he had a gross income of $ 7,115 set.
"As you can see, Pete is not a millionaire," said the Buttigieg campaign. "He does not fund this campaign through personal wealth, corporate PACs, or DC lobbyists, and he's running this campaign in the same way he led his life – by being fair and decent."
