COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and her husband reported earning more than $282,000 in her third year as the state's CEO.

Tax returns viewed Wednesday afternoon show that about $105,000 of the Haleys' 2013 earnings came from her book. They also earned $70,500 from investments.

State law sets the governor's salary at just over $106,000. Michael Haley's military income was not taxable during his deployment to Afghanistan with the South Carolina Army National Guard.

The first couple paid $20,700 in state and federal taxes.

The Haleys donated $126,000 to charity, with $80,000 of that going to her community aid foundation, the Original Six.

Haley's campaign gave reporters access to her 2013 tax returns a week after her Democratic opponent, Sen. Vincent Sheheen, handed out copies of his.
