Find Out Barack Obama's 2008 Salary

Barack and Michelle Obama released their 2008 tax returns today.

The couple -- who filed jointly -- earned $2,656,902 last year, which White House reps say mostly came from the sales of the president's books, Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope.

They paid $855,323 in federal income taxes, and $77,883 in Illinois state income taxes. They were set to receive a $26,000 refund, but instead applied the amount to their 2009 income taxes.

The couple also donated $172,050 to 37 charities, including $25,000 each to CARE, which fights global warming, and the United Negro College Fund.

Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill earned considerably less: $270,000. They donated $1,885 to charity.
