    Mitt Romney: I "Our church doesn’t publish how much people have given. This is done entirely privately. One of the downsides of releasing one’s financial information is that this is now all public, but we had never intended our contributions to be known. It’s a very personal thing between ourselves and our commitment to our God and to our church." - Mitt Romney, coming up with a new excuse in an interview with Parade Magazine.

    I guess his dad wasn't as committed to God and Church as Mitt. He released 12 years of tax returns.

    Willard and SwissMiss need to get on the same page:

    "You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life and where he's been financially. He's been a very generous person. We give ten percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person that is trying to hide things?"

    Any Presidential candidate who doesn't want to release his tax records for all Americans to view tells me that he is hiding something that would stop Americans from voting for him.

    It's just as simple as this icon_exclaim.gif

    He could release his tax returns with the sums of his church donations redacted.

    Mitt is in a pit and he just keeps digging.

    By now all Americans know that Willard is NOT the man that his father was.

    Didn't he already release one year? If so, what's the official threshhold in SLC for tax return releases, whereby one more release and you get excommunicated? 2, 5, 10?

    Did Mitt Romney Take the 2009 Swiss Bank Account Amnesty?

    From a 2009 LA Times piece:


    Wealthy U.S. taxpayers, concerned about an Internal Revenue Service crackdown on the use of secret overseas bank accounts as tax havens, are rushing to meet a Thursday deadline to disclose those accounts or face possible criminal prosecution. The concern was triggered this summer when Switzerland's largest bank, caught up in an international tax evasion dispute, said it would disclose the names of more than 4,000 of its U.S. account holders.
    The decision shattered a long-held belief that Swiss banks would guard the identities of its American customers as carefully as they did their money, and it raised concern that other international tax havens might be next. Under an amnesty program, the IRS is allowing taxpayers to avoid prosecution for having failed to report their overseas accounts. As a result, tax attorneys across the nation have been besieged by wealthy clients who are lining up to apply even though they will still face big financial penalties.
