    Re: Did Mitt Romney go a full 10 years without paying taxes?

    Of course he did not pay taxes. Why would he pay taxes in a tax free country?


    No as a whole I bet he paid about 1.5% taxes.
    So say he has 90% of assests in tax free places. That means he paid 1.5% taxes over all. (assuming 15% USA rate for mega rich)

    You will also remember that he transfered, with no USA inheritance taxes to his kids. $250 million.
    (special stock exemption)


    From taxation law site. Or any other source you look at. same thing. ZERO TAXES on the mega rich.
    "For stocks, there is no capital gains tax, which makes Grand Cayman Island attractive for investors. No matter how much you earn on an investment, you do not owe any taxes to the government. The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority oversees all hedge funds, investments, corporate governance activities, and structured finance activities in the island."

    IRS is not the point. POINT is his tax rate on over all assets. Most are in ZERO tax places like the caymans.

    Of course he paid no taxes.
    Why would he pay taxes in zero tax caymans and swissa ccounts?

I would like him to release his tax forms as a measure of transparency, but Reid's baseless accusations and demands are without merit.
    He paid no taxes on USA inheritance for his kids. $250 mil tax free.

    And he paid no taxes on over seas assets. So his over all rate would be very very low, say 1-2%.

    I assume Reid has squat (he is such a dumbass, after all) - so he will have to shut up.

    This will make the dems look foolish and puts Romney in a better light - without doing anything.

    Unless Reid has rock solid evidence against Romney, I would imagine Obama is privately none to pleased with him right now.
    how did reid, who entered "public service" with a lower middle class net worth and who has only had public service salaries become worth millions?

    I hope he took every single legal loophole that exists in American tax law.

    The last person that should run America is some economic dumbass who gives the U.S. government more money then it is entitled to.

    If you are dying to give your money away - give it to charity where it does some REAL good.

    Not to the pathetically inept U.S. government.

    Through nefarious actions, most likely.

    American tax law is irrelivant.

    Swiss law is
    Cayman law is (ZERO TAXES on Mega rich)
    and any other place he hides his ~$400 mil.
