But I noticed that the White House made a big deal about the transparency in releasing a copy of their 1040s — “As another demonstration of the President’s commitment to openness and transparency, today the White House issued the following releases making the President and Vice President’s tax returns public.”

Their combined income was $2,656,902. They paid $855,323 in federal income taxes. They donated $172,050 – 6.5% of their adjusted gross income – to 37 different charities.
Compare that to the Bushes: $719,274 in income, $221,635 in federal income taxes, $165,660 to charities — 23%.
