With some editorial fixes, your XML produces these triples :

_:j36 <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#type> 
<http://example.org/exobject> .
_:j36 <http://example.org/ex1type> "extended" .
_:j36 <http://example.org/exSSN> <uuid:ssn:1112223344> .
_:j36 <http://example.org/exhasIncomeOf> "1000000" .
_:j38 <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#type> 
<http://example.org/exHouse> .
_:j38 <http://example.org/exhasAddress> "1234 West Ridge Road" .
_:j36 <http://example.org/exownsHouse> _:jARP14838 .
_:j39 <http://example.org/ex1type> "locator" .
_:j39 <http://example.org/ex1href> "urn:csb:1263-27389" .
_:j36 <http://example.org/exbank-transaction> _:jARP14839 .
_:j40 <http://example.org/ex1type> "locator" .
_:j40 <http://example.org/ex1href> "urn:csb:1263-38562" .
_:j36 <http://example.org/exbank-transaction> _:jARP14840 .

you can do this because as Jonathan points out RDF/XML parsers will 
make assumptions about the structure of XML elements being feed to 
them, mapping them onto triples and reporting errors if the 
structure (striping) isn't 'there'. IMO it makes for ugly markup, 
but each to their own.
