The Obama's Tax Returns
As with all modern presidents, the Obamas released their tax returns for 2009. The Bidens did as well. You can view the actual forms if you are interested. The Obamas made $5.5 million last year. They gave away $329, 100 last year, not including the entire $1.4 million from the Nobel Peace Prize. They paid almost $1.8 million in federal income tax last year and then $163,303 to the state of Illinois. Among their charitable donations were $50,000 each to CARE and the United Negro College Fund. The Bidens, by contrast, only reported an income of $329,100 last year. You can view past tax returns from presidents and presidential candidates here.
