Hillary Clinton released seven years of tax returns Friday evening, posting her filings from 2007 to 2014 on her campaign website.

Since 2007, the Clintons have paid $43 million in federal income taxes and $13.6 million in states taxes while reporting $13.6 million in charitable contributions.

"We've come a long way from my days going door-to-door for the Children's Defense Fund and earning $16,450 as a young law professor in Arkansas," the Democratic front-runner said in a statement, "and we owe it to the opportunities America provides."

Last year, the Clintons paid an effective tax rate of 35.7 percent. Factor in state and local taxes, and her effective tax rate was 45.8 percent.

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, was criticized for paying an effective tax rate that hovered around 15 percent. Bill Clinton helped raise the top statutory marginal income tax rate to 39.6 percent in 1993.

Hillary Clinton took the opportunity to slam two Republican presidential candidates' tax plans for being too weighted in favor of the rich. "For example, [former Florida Gov.] Jeb Bush supports eliminating or dramatically lowering capital gains taxes for wealthy investors with no incentives for long-term holding," she said. "[Florida Sen.] Marco Rubio's plan would cut taxes for households making more than $3 million a year by almost $240,000 — more than four times the earnings of a typical family."

Clinton, who has proposed higher tax rates on short-term capital gains, decried this as a "budget-busting give-away to the super-wealthy and the sort of bad economics you're likely to get from any of the Republican candidates."

"Families like mine that reap rewards from our economy have a responsibility to pay our fair share," she said in the statement. "And it's not just the right thing to do — it's also good for growth."

The tax returns were released the same day she shared a letter from her physician about her health and the State Department produced the latest batch of her emails as secretary of state, per a court order.
