Why is Willard Rmoney afraid to file his tax returns

What is he hiding?
This man should not be allowed near the presidency - transparency is missing - he is hiding his money overseas.

1. Either he's hiding some money overseas, or else

he just doesn't want people to know how filthy stinking rich he really is and how little tax he pays on his filthy stinking riches.

4. Oh, heavens....

I'd be the absolute LAST one to defend Willard, but, we must be fair, musn't we? I, along with the rest of the Dems, would like to see Willard's tax returns for the last ten years -- let's see where and how he got his wealth and where he's storing it now. However, many people file extensions of their tax returns. My daughter works for an accounting office and they are busy doing just that for the next couple of days. There's nothing nefarious about it -- the more complicated the return, the more likely an extension will be filed in order for accountants to amass the amount of information required.

Now that being said, let's go after the SOB for the real issues: anti-women, anti-labor, anti-gay, anti- well, you name it, he's against it (unless he's for it -- depends on the audience he is wooing). He signs on to the Ryan government debilitation plan with glee. His vision of America (massive unemployment, swaths of deaths due to lack of health care, oceans of homeless) are the very things we should shout out against him. He and his ilk must NOT be allowed in positions of power where they might implement their plan of total destruction.

5. Exactly. He did the same thing last year: Got the automatic extension and filed in October

Its not that unusual, particularly for more complex tax returns. I have no doubt that it will be filed before the October 15 deadline -- in fact, my guess is that he files it earlier than that simply to get the story behind him during the summer months. Look for it to be filed and released some Friday afternoon in July or early August when people aren't paying that close attention to the news.

12. Why are those the *real* issues anymore than the sources of his money, its disposition and

 

taxation?

Being as Romney started out rich and got richer running a hedge fund, I'm very interested in his money.

7. im guessing there were some years in which he paid no taxes at all.

this came out on ann richard's opponent in the 90 governor's race. it was probably the last nail in his coffin.

8. My guess is, he's actually a billionaire, and paid less in taxes last year than I did.

10. He may just be collecting interest on the money he would need to pay

so he is putting off filing/paying as long as possible.


If he does have something to hide then he should try to get it out sooner rather than later. The longer he waits the better for us.

13. Maybe it's the October Surprise.

Extensions give you until October 15th to file.
