Mitt Romney paid $1.95 million in taxes on his 2011 investment income of $13.7 million
... Mr. Romney has said that he has paid at least 13 percent in federal income taxes in each of the last 10 years.
... Mr. Romney and his wife, Ann, donated about $4 million to charity in 2011, but claimed only $2.25 million as a deduction ...So, Mitt's combined 2011 contributions to taxes and charity amount to 43.4%. Not too shabby. Nevertheless, as might be expected, 99.9% of the comments to the NYT article express derision.
