obama paid more than 15%?
Of course Obama pays more than 15% on his income he receives as our President. He will also pay the regular income tax rate on book sales.
I have no idea what investments he has made which have garnered him capital gains, but he will pay 15% on those.
What makes you think otherwise to cause you to start this topic?
Mitt is one of the two people that he may be facing in the upcoming election. For that reason alone, if I was him, I would make sure that I would pay more then 15% and release that info just prior to a key debate
Of course he did.
He pays at least 35% on his $400,000 federal salary.
Tax Brackets (Federal Income Tax Rates) 2000 through 2011 and 2012
He doesn't have a lot of assets to invest on which he only gets taxed on his capital gains.
So Obama's tax rate will be a LOT higher.
We need at least six years of income tax records. and his records from the admissions office, and his thesis. what's he hiding? what's he afraid of?
Very easily countered.
MITT: If elected, I will have to pay regular income tax on my salary, just like you do now. But then again, I may not, since I plan on donating all of it to charity.
WTF is your problemo asswipe...errr..... WillowTree?!!!
Who does Mitt work for that he gets a "salary"?
If elected, the People of the United States of America: Presidential Pay and Compensation – Pay and Compensation of the President of the United States
He took risk and invested his money that was already taxed once.
