No one is saying anything was done illegally...and if it was done illegally...we wouldn't see it in his tax returns...that is the whole point of doing something illegally

But...the American public is not going to be happy to see a milliionaire pay zero taxes for 10 years if that is in fact true.
Well what we refer to as 'we' generally have less knowledge about the tax returns and the changing laws every year. No way in hell would he not pay any txes for 10 years. The question so far is with respect to the 'capital gain' taxes and not the 'income taxes'. Which tax he didn't pay? Any idea? Anyone?


Nope, no idea...that is the whole point...no one knows anything because he won't release his tax returns.

It's just damaging him...if he has nothing to hide or be ashamed of...he should releast 10 years of tax returns, drop a domb on the Dems, and make Obama and others calling for him to release them look like fools.

Or, he can continue to refuse to release them...and by default...admit that he isn't proud of what's in those returns.

He released the last 2 years which is all that is required for a candidate...it just a pre-election smoke and mirrors tactic so attention is taken off the mess Obama has made.

He earned $23,425,316 and paid $412.18 in federal income taxes. This calculates to a federal tax rate of 0.0018%. How did Romney get his tax burden so low? According to his return, he had approximately $23,407,000 in itemized deductions. These deductions ranged from $78,923 for “Toupee Creators Unlimited” and $41,826 for “Spray-on tan services” to a $3.8 million dollar write-off for a trip to Las Vegas with potential campaign donors.

The Romney family also paid salaries to their numerous employees including, two yacht captains, three pilots for their private jets, two professional dog walkers, one toupee stylist and a “live-in contortionist”. What someone does with a live-in contortionist, one can only speculate.

However, the $891,064 Romney spent on an “EWS Donor Party at the Pennsylvania Mansion” might give us a clue. While the return does not indicate what “EWS” stands for, given that the deducted supplies for the party included “Venetian masks, alcohol, lubricant and various Egyptian leather accessories” it was most likely an “Eyes Wide Shut” party.

So what's the point there?

Only the Obamas can spend money like a 6500 jacket to see the queen and all the other "lavish" spending the king and queen have for the past 3 and half years.

This crap is old considering that Americans have had swiss accounts and the greedy left who tries to hang them for it, and have everyday it is no wonder why millions of Americans bank offshore.

This debate has already happened around here. Prove it. Better yet, let the IRS open an investigation. That is their job. Rest assured, Romney's tax records have been groomed with a fine tooth comb by an army of IRS agents. Furthermore, trust that his returns were prepared by highly skilled accountants and tax attorneys.


Doubtful they used the Turbo Tax system for Mitt.


However, it's good software for a simple return.

So Romney legally owes little to no taxes.... but 36 Obama "staffers" owe $833k in back taxes and that you don't even pay attention to.

If you want tax reform then by God go after tax reform. It's sad Democrats have no interest in tax reform or fair tax alternatives but are the first to criticize others who are following the (broken) rules.

So you quote a source who's tag line is "News that's almost reliable" and an article written by a man who describes himself as....


Orbson Rice is a deeply disturbed professional Writer and Editor. He is also the “Creator” of the blog “The Orbson Oracle” which is thoroughly offensive, often thoughtful and occasionally funny. Stroke your mouse and visit the Oracle to read more or befriend him on Facebook.


Funny ha ha ... That's all that's left when there are no facts to back things up...

Oh, I think nobody ever doubted that! Did you?

And so it might just be the case that his finely crafted returns did result in using every loophole known to man (and man's subspecies, CPA) to squirrel money away in a foreign account or tax haven.


If that is so I salute him. Why give any more money to this corrupt government than you have to? I do every thing I can do to pay as little tax as possible, why shouldn't Romney?

By the way, did John Kerry ever pay the taxes he owed on that yacht of his?

Romney just needs to drop his presidential campaign, but Harry Reid needs to shut the F*** up and worry about auditing the FED and not Romney.

Harry Reid alleges this. Tell him to prove it.
Reid is an imbecile. Let's see some quotes on Reid and taxes.The rest of the article is amazing. How does Arizona keep electing this buffoon?




According to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D), our government tax system is a "voluntary" one. "You see, in many other countries, it's not voluntary, for example... in many countries, the government makes sure that your employer takes out every penny of it. Many countries don't file income tax returns."

Out of curiosity, why do you call Obama "King O"?

Yes...they want to see tax returns for when he wasn't planning on running for President.

Most other past candidates have done this....Romney's own father started the tradition...Romney criticized past opponents for not releasing enough returns.

You go on and keep on defending him...I don't mind...the longer Romney refuses to release them...the more damage he does to himself.

Mitt Romney: SHOW YOUR TAX RETURNS.

Simple request. Your opponent has shown tax returns for the past decade.

If he won't show them - then he has something to hide.

I laughed when I read this story. A rumor and hearsay. Nothing more, yet the state run media is lapping it up.


I heard a rumor that Harry Reid is a child molester and has a dungeon in his basement, where he has children tied up. I don't know if it's true, but I'm pretty sure it's "new worthy".
