Former president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton have earned $30 million from paid speaking engagements and book sales since January 2014, multiple outlets reported Friday.

According to disclosure forms filed with the Federal Election Commission Friday, the Clintons earned $25 million from giving over 100 speeches in 2014 and the first four months of 2015. The former secretary of state earned an additional $5 million from sales of her June 2014 memoir, Hard Choices.

Clinton officially launched her 2016 presidential campaign last month. As the Washington Post notes, candidates are required to file financial information with the FEC within 30 days of declaring unless granted an extension.

Hillary Clinton began giving paid speeches in 2013, reportedly earning around $200,000 per engagement. Bill Clinton has also had a lucrative career on the speaking circuit, earning $104.9 million from 2001 to 2013.

According to Bloomberg Politics and Politico, a Clinton official said the Clintons paid an effective tax rate of 30 percent in 2014.
