LANSING, Michigan — Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette and his wife reported income of about $300,000 last year.
Schuette released a summary of his 2014 federal tax return Friday. He and wife Cynthia reported about $68,000 in charitable donations and paying nearly $55,000 in federal, state and local taxes.
The 61-year-old Schuette has mostly worked in public office as an elected or appointed official since 1985. He makes roughly $112,000 a year as attorney general.
The couple reported about $115,000 in dividend income, $35,000 in capital gains and nearly $41,000 from pensions and annuities.
An independent trustee manages the couple's financial assets to avoid a conflict with his job as attorney general.
Schuette says he voluntarily releases tax information to "ensure that the public knows that I am serving them and not myself."
