(CNS News) If the Bush tax cuts hadn’t been extended and the president hadn’t chosen to employ those tax breaks he despises so much, Pres. Obama could’ve paid $103,067 more in taxes than he actually did for 2011. And, with the help of a government website, he could still pay it, anyway.

The White House reported today that the Obamas has adjusted gross income (AGI) of $789,674 in 2011, on which they paid $162,074 in federal taxes. That works out to a tax rate of 20.5% of AGI.

Without using any type of credits to reduce the taxes paid on their AGI, at the current rate, that would make the Obamas’ tax liability $246,257.
