Democratic contender for president Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, missed out on this tax break, too.
The former vice president released federal and state income tax returns for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 on Tuesday, in advance of the first debate against President Donald Trump.
On their 2019 return, the couple reported taxable income of $944,737 and paid $299,346 in federal income taxes.
Though the Bidens claimed itemized deductions on their 2019 income tax return, it turns out they missed out on what would have been a massive write-off: state and local levies.
During 2019, the Bidens paid $94,349 in state and local taxes, plus $17,368 in real estate taxes.
