Part of Vice President Joe Biden's income last year came from the Secret Service, according to White House Dossier.
The agency paid Biden $20,900 to host agents on his property -- for his protection, reports Keith Koffler, who runs the White House Dossier website. The rent was for a “cottage” on Biden's property.
Not only did Biden bring in some extra income from the federal government, he also got a break on his taxes. His deductions for mortgage interest and taxes on that property means he only must report $12,653 of the $20,900 on his federal tax return, White House Dossier reports.
