Little-known fact: most presidents since the 70s release some form of their tax returns to the public.

Here’s George W. Bush’s tax return for last year. I’m not terribly surprised that he somehow managed to get a refund of over $19,000 while I owed over $500 this year, but whatever.

The part that amused me, however, is that Laura Bush’s occupation is listed as “First Lady.”

It is, indeed, a position that requires a shitload of work. It’s also an unpaid position, however. Do stay-at-home moms list their occupation as “homemaker”? I’m honestly curious.
