Donald Trump declared a net worth exceeding $10 billion on government financial disclosure forms needed for his presidential campaign, as well as an income of $362 million in 2014.

“This report was not designed for a man of Mr. Trump’s massive wealth,” his campaign said in a release, according to Bloomberg News. “For instance, they have boxes once a certain number is reached that simply state $50 million or more. Many of these boxes have been checked.”

Trump earlier said the number would be “far in excess of what anybody thought.”

Last month, Trump declared a net worth of $8.7 billion but said the figure was over a year old.

The campaign also released a list of stock transactions showing that Trump made $6.7 million through selling Bank of America shares and $3.9 million from selling Facebook shares last year.

Once submitted, the Federal Election Commission has 30 days to review the disclosure forms and make them publicly available.
