WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, reported adjusted gross income of $481,098 for 2013, down 21 percent from last year, according to tax returns released today by the White House.

The Obamas paid $98,169 in federal taxes, including at least $2,310 imposed by the 2010 Affordable Care Act that he signed. That’s an effective income tax rate of 20.4 percent.
