WASHINGTON — So how much would you have to pay in taxes under each presidential candidate?
With debates already at a fevered pitch, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are trying to convince voters to side with them — but it’s hard to size up a candidate from podium time alone.

If you’re married, make $140,000 and have two or more children:
What about the millionaires? Here’s a married couple with no children who makes $1 million:
