President Bush and his wife paid more than $62,000 in income taxes in 1988 on income of $287,000, according to their tax return, which was made public by the White House on Wednesday. The return provides a glimpse of the first family's wealth, showing income from investments and charitable contributions and disclosing that the Bushes overpaid their taxes by about 50%, or $32,000. Asked about the whopping overpayment, White House Press Secretary Marlin Fitzwater said that Bush followed a "conservative" approach in making estimated payments, and added: "Maybe he had high ambitions for his blind trust."
