Obama paid a federal income tax rate of 18.4 percent
 
President Obama and Vice President Bidenís 2012 Tax Returns

The Presidentís effective federal income tax rate is 18.4 percent

Today, the President released his 2012 federal income tax returns. He and the First Lady filed their income tax returns jointly and reported adjusted gross income of $608,611. The Obamas paid $112,214 in total tax.

The President and First Lady also reported donating $150,034 Ė or about 24.6 percent of their adjusted gross income Ė to 33 different charities. The largest reported gift to charity was $103,871 to the Fisher House Foundation.

The Presidentís effective federal income tax rate is 18.4 percent. The President believes we must reform our tax system which is why he has proposed policies like the Buffett Rule that would ask the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share while protecting families making under $250,000 from seeing their taxes go up. Under the Presidentís own tax proposals, including limitations on the value of tax preferences for high-income households, he would pay more in taxes while ensuring we cut taxes for the middle class and those trying to get in it.

The President and First Lady also released their Illinois income tax return and reported paying $29,450 in state income tax.

What's amazing is he shows an adjusted gross income of $608,611, when lives the lavish life style of a Hollywood movie star and spends more than that on a single vacation.

This just in: Heads of state get lots of perks (some 'perks' against their will, like 24/7 surveillance)

Should the president be required to pay for his own security? Should the president be charged rent for staying in the White House?

What purpose would that serve?

So his proposed tax reform would raise his own taxes? Sounds good to me.
Like someone once said,the differance between a rich dem & a rich rep is a rich dem will vote against his own interest for the betterment of the country.

I think his tax is about right. He still has to pay tax on things he buys and all the other little taxes everyone gets hit with. Sure he's president so hes not paying a cable bill but when he buys a gift for his kids he still pays sales tax etc.

Also people need to stop about the lavishness of Obamas lifestyle. Compared to other leaders ours do not like all that high on the hog. Also though hes the leader of our country, we want him and his family to travel posh its the first family. I agree Obama should not be trying to make the sequester seem worst then it is, but I don't think his lifestyle that lavish. He does throw a lot of concerts and he should not have closed the white house for tours. They should just do both because you know the money is still there.

Hell n korea is probably a few years away from having working nuclear missiles or in other words we have bigger fish to fry. America **** Yeah.

I mean cmon what do you want Michelle Obama to do stay in a motel six?

Typical ****ing idiots. 18% sounds right????

Tombstone RJ 04-16-2013 06:01 PM

the thing about BO's $600k is that it's all gravy. He has no expenses, none. So it's all money in the bank. That's the way it is for all the presidents. Being that he's the most powerful man in the universe, err, world, I'm ok with this.

Whats best for the people, at the expense of the country. Their first job is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. They are failing miserably.

We the people are the country.

I think its hilarious when people attack this particular president's lifestyle and vacations. Its really not that different from the prior 5 presidents... in fact less than most of the republican presidents. And, all presidents get the perks, that should never go away. Get over it.

As Nancy Reagan said - “Presidents don’t get vacations — they just get a change of scenery. The job goes with you.”

Check out vacation days for many presidents: http://communities.washingtontimes.c...#ixzz2QjrT3Ya6

Obama has spent more money then any other President ever in his first 4 yrs. Also his giveaway to the solor companies is a joke. Another 10 million down the drain the other day. Hell how many does that make now?
