Mitt Romney 2011 Tax Returns: Released!

by at . Comments

Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann Romney, released their 2011 tax returns today. Spoiler alerts: They're still really rich, and Democrats will call for him to release more!

They paid $1.94 million in federal income taxes on income of $13.7 million, most of it from investments, for an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent, his campaign said.

That's slightly above the 13.9 percent rate the couple paid for 2010.

Mitt Romney Wins Primary

The Republican presidential candidate's taxes have emerged as an ongoing issue in the 2012 election, as he has declined to release any returns filed before 2010.

Romney's fortune and association with Bain Capital, the private equity firm he co-founded, have been lightning rods in his bid to unseat President Barack Obama.

Critics, including Obama, have urged Romney to release more than just the two years of returns; for whatever reason, he has indicated he does not plan to do so.

It's been kind of a tough week for Mitt, with his 47 percent comment going viral, and even a surprising story about his eldest son Tagg Romney emerging today.

What do you think? Should he release more tax returns?

How cynical of him! This was OBVIOUSLY done to appease us over that pesky tax avoidance issue habit of his. Not going to work on me, sorry. First he is on record as saying that over-paying your taxes SHOULD disqualify you from presidency. (stupid logic but its his logic) Second, this man is notorious for hiding his cash in offshore Tax Havens to avoid Uncle Sam. Who in their right mind would believe that he happily paid extra this year........an election year .....because hes a nice guy (who sometimes drives cross country with his dog strapped to the roof of his car) ??????

I find no problem with Romney's tax returns. It's within the tax code...so what? He's also been very generous with regard to charity as well.

Took him all summer to fudge up a set for "you people", as his wife calls the voters.

Obama gets to start scrapping public toilets come Jan'13.Romney will win in a landslide.Take a look at the midterm elections from a couple years ago--it was a harbinger of what is to come.A November housecleaning of of the Donkeys.The Elephants are taking back the white house and a white man who has the experience to do the job will restore/if not stop the bleeding so we can avoid a complete dollar collapse.

Can you beleive that Obama sent Susan Rice on a media campaign so she could lie for him and say the attacks happened because of the movie? Now today- 10 days later they admit the truth! I don't want a liar in the whitehouse when it comes to the safety of a ambassador.
