Caitlyn Jenner‘s tax returns have revealed that she might not be living quite as large as people think she does.
Insider saw copies of Jenner’s tax returns from 2016 to 2019, which indicated that her income has fallen to a fifth of what she earned in 2016.
Jenner earned close to $US550,000 ($AU747,865) in 2019, per her tax returns. Jenner’s US-earned income mainly came through a California-registered business called Team Tours Inc., and her company, Cait’s World.
According to the company’s listings, Team Tours Inc. is a payroll business, and Cait’s World is a foreign stock firm. It is not clear what work Jenner did for Team Tours Inc. or Cait’s World, and her representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.
In all, the $US550,000 ($AU747,865) Jenner earned in 2019 is just a fifth of what she earned in 2016 when she reaped around $US2.5 ($AU3) million in total income. She starred in the second season of her reality TV show “I am Cait” in 2016.
According to Jenner’s 2019 tax returns, she also made around $US320,000 ($AU435,121) in gross income in Australia. Per the AP, this was the same year Jenner filmed an installment of the UK reality TV show “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” there. Jenner is now back in Australia to film a celebrity version of the reality show “Big Brother.”
Jenner’s financial filings were released due to a requirement for all California gubernatorial candidates to reveal their tax returns to be on the ballot. The law was originally put in place in 2019 to force Trump to disclose his taxes. The requirement was later struck down for presidential candidates, though this regulation has remained for gubernatorial elections.
Jenner is one of 41 candidates who have qualified to run in the September California recall election, an effort to oust Gov. Gavin Newsom from his seat. She announced her candidacy in April and has since made several statements that led to critiques that she is out of touch.
In a May interview with the Fox News host Sean Hannity, she said she did not think California needed a high-speed rail, repeatedly mentioning her private jet. She also made controversial comments about the homeless in California this month, suggesting that they be moved to “big open fields” because they are “destroying Venice beach.”
Newsom released his tax returns in May. According to a report by Politico, Newsom and his wife, filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom, made $US1.69 ($AU2) million in 2019. Politico noted that this was almost $US500,000 ($AU679,877) more than they made in 2018, the year before Newsom was elected governor.
If elected, Jenner will likely receive a government paycheck of around $US218,556 ($AU297,182) every year, which is what Newsom currently earns.
