So how much does the president make?

April 12, 2008


— The federal tax bill for President Bush and his wife: $221,635.

That's how much the Bushes owed on their adjusted gross income of $923,807 for the year 2007, according to a joint return released Friday.

The Bushes have paid $203,894 so far, which means they'll need to break out the checkbook - they owe the government $17,741.

Their income total includes a $150,000 advance received by Laura Bush for the children's book she co-authored with her daughter, Jenna.

Last year, the president and Mrs. Bush paid $186,378 in federal taxes on their income of $765,801.

Bush's salary as president is about $400,000.
