Former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, gave 1.5% of their income to charity in 2019, records show.

The Bidens released several years of their tax returns ahead of the first presidential debate on Tuesday, on the heels of a New York Times story on Sunday that claimed Trump had paid no net taxes in some recent years due to business losses.

The Bidens’ adjusted gross income was $985,233 in 2019. They gave $14,700 to charity.

The charities to which they gave were: Northern Virginia Community College Educational Foundation ($1,200); and St. Joseph on the Brandywine, where the Bidens’ son, Beau, is buried ($2,000); Westminster Presbyterian Church ($1,500). They also list $10,000 in contributions from “Giacoppa Corp,” one of the S-corporations the Bidens use for some of their income (thereby avoiding Medicare and Social Security taxes).

The Bidens have been criticized in the past for paltry giving, though they gave more in recent years. In 2008, ABC News reported that they had given only $369 per year, on average, for the previous decade. They had never given more than $995 in any given year, according to Breitbart.

They gave $275,796 in 2018. But with their 2019 return, the Bidens appear to have dropped back to a lower level of giving.

President Trump has donated his entire salary to the U.S. since taking office. White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Breitbart News that Trump has given $1.4 million in salary to the federal government.

In August, President Trump donated $100,000 of his salary to help repair national monuments damaged during anti-police brutality protests.

The funds —  a quarter of the presidents $400,000 annual pay — will go toward the National Park Service for the restorations, according to Trump. “I promised YOU I would not take a dime of salary as your President. I donate the entire $400,000!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “It is my honor to give $100,000 to @NatlParkService to help repair and restore our GREAT National Monuments. So important to our American History! Thank You!!”
