Recent financial disclosures show that Ivanka Trump pulled in at least $12M and Jared Kushner at least $70M last year.

According to financial disclosure forms released Monday, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner made at least $82 million last year in outside income as they worked with President Donald Trump inside the White House.

The Washington Post noted while both have given up daily oversight of their companies and divested some holdings, the couple still has large stakes in businesses with foreign and domestic ties.

Trump earned $3.9 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington and more than $2 million in severance from the Trump Organization, while Kushner reported over $5 million in income from Quail Ridge, a Kushner Cos. apartment complex acquired last year in Plainsboro, N.J.

The filings show how the couple are collecting immense sums from other enterprises while serving in the White House, an extraordinary income flow that ethics experts have warned could create potential conflicts of interests.

A Washington Post analysis performed last year showed that Kushner held onto about 90 percent of his real estate holdings after joining his father-in-law at the White House as a senior aide.

Trump earned at least $12 million last year, with the largest source of income coming from the trust that oversees her clothing brand, which paid her more than $5 million, the filings show.

The new filings reflect a change in the structure of Trump’s payments from limited-liability companies affiliated with the Trump Organization. Trump will now receive guaranteed fixed yearly payments instead of payments based on profits from three companies tied to the Trump Organization’s international projects.

For his part, Kushner reported drawing income from dozens of companies tied to his family’s real estate company. In all, he pulled in at least $70 million, the documents show.
