Warren hasn’t been shy about releasing her tax returns from past years. In August, the Massachusetts Democrat made public 10 years of tax returns, going back to 2008.

A handful of other 2020 hopefuls have released tax documents in recent weeks, including Sens.

“There’s a crisis of faith in government — and that’s because the American people think the government works for the wealthy and well-connected, not for them,” Warren said in a statement.

“And they’re right. I’ve put out eleven years of my tax returns because no one should ever have to guess who their elected officials are working for. Doing this should be law,”

Warren’s latest return shows her income is considerably higher than some of her Democratic opponents.

Sanders has long held out on releasing his tax returns, but has insisted that the documents are “boring” and that there will not be any surprises in his finances.

In an interview with The New York Times on Monday, Sanders acknowledged that he has become a millionaire following the success of his 2016 book, "Our Revolution."
