That's the rate Romney paid the IRS in 2011.

I paid a higher % than than in just payroll tax...not including Federal and State.

Somewhere stirs and madhatter are prepping insults about how libs/dems don't pay their fair share.

I thought that when they report these things, they don't include social security and medicare (what I'm assuming you're referring to as payroll tax)

And that's in a year when he knew he was about to run for President. His trustee also said he intentionally deferred $1.75 million in charitable deductions just to get his rate above 13%. He paid more than he had to just so it wouldn't look bad. Wonder what he paid in, say, 2000 and before.

That means nothing without knowing how that accounting firm arrived at that number. They released a statement without any details and Mitt stuck it on his website. Worthless figure. For all we know they excluded all deductions and used a weighted average. How about we get someone who doesn't work for Romney to tell us about his tax rate.

He's released more than he has to.

How about Obama releasing all of his 2008 direct campaign donors....something that should be federally mandated.

He's released more than he has to.

Yet not as much as he has called on his opponents to release.

Mitt is getting ripped off. I only paid 11.9% in federal income taxes last year. He should use turbo tax like I did.

Politicians should be as forthcoming as this guy. He was known for his honesty and liked to record things too.
