Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Friday released her latest federal income tax return and urging her Republican rival Donald Trump to do the same.

The return shows she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, paid roughly a third of their multi-million dollar income to Uncle Sam, according to CNN.

The Clintons pulled in $10.6 million in 2015, much less than the nearly $28 million they made the year before.

Their tax return showed that they paid $3.24 million in federal income taxes.

That means their effective tax rate -- a measure of their income tax burden -- was 30.6% based on their adjusted gross income. That's on par with their 32% effective rate in 2014.

The Clintons primarily made their money in two ways: speaking and writing, according to CNN.

Together they made $6.8 million in speaking fees. That's well below the roughly $20 million they made the year before. They also made close to $3.1 million on their various books.

And Bill Clinton's consulting business brought in nearly $1.7 million.

With the release of her 2015 income taxes, Clinton has now released 39 years' worth of tax returns over the course of her career.

Trump has yet to release any tax returns, a fact which Clinton brings up regularly as part of her campaign against the Republican nominee.

Trump says he's not releasing them because he's under audit and said he would when the audit is complete.
