New York Attorney General Reports $217,000 in Income

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has reported taxable income of $217,622 in his fifth year as the state's top lawyer.

That includes more than $36,000 from ordinary dividends and $30,000 in capital gains on investments.

Schneiderman, who investigated the 2008 collapse of mortgage-backed securities that contributed to the recession, invests in funds handled by TD Ameritrade.

His 2015 federal return shows federal taxes owed of $39,832.

He paid $65,416 including estimated payments, now taking a $15,584 refund and applying $10,000 to next year.

His overall income is down about $110,000 from a year earlier, mainly from lower capital gains.

The Manhattan resident's state return shows $12,998 in state and $7,012 in city income taxes.

He overpaid by $10,368, taking $4,368 as a refund and applying $6,000 to next year.
