Earlier, Mitt Romney released his current tax returns showing a 14.1% tax rate.
Ok, but what does this tell us? To be honest, that’s a fairly average tax rate. He still paid nearly $2 million in taxes last year. Some people may say that it isn’t high enough for the multi million dollar a year business man. However, I’d have to say good for anyone who is cutting their taxes. Don’t tell me that if you could, you wouldn’t try to find ways to cut taxes. Who isn’t going to acknowledge applicable tax deductions on their returns? This simply shows how much of a business man this guy really is. So… essentially all these reports just show…. that he pays taxes. Hmm surprising isn’t it? Now, if he were illegally getting around paying his taxes, that would be a different story. Granted the detailed reports are helpful in catching the bad stuff.
Personally, I tend to go republican. However, I’m not exactly satisfied with Mitt Romney, or Obama for that matter. I really didn’t want to get into politics but ok, I went there.
