One other theory I offer, just because I haven't seen it mentioned (which may well mean it's completely off the wall). What if the reason Romney isn't releasing his returns is because he's currently involved in an enormous audit with the IRS, going back through a decade's worth of his returns, based on one of the numerous really shady things he is rumored to have been doing to avoid taxes? I'm assuming the IRS wouldn't announce to the world that it is auditing Romney, anymore than they would announce to the world that they were auditing me. So maybe Romney simply realizes that in the world of political calculus, if the audit won't be completed until December, he'll be in office by then, if he wins, and if he wins, it probably means that the Republicans have retained either the House or Senate, and therefore he isn't in danger of being immediately impeached. Well, just trying to think of reasons why Romney seems insistent on living in the worst of all possible worlds on this issue.

I, too, wish there was some way, ANY WAY, for Romney to prove he paid income tax. /

re: #1 steve_davis

What if he's a billionaire? And has been letting us believe he's not?

What if he's paying lower taxes under Obama than he did under Bush?

What if he didn't pay any taxes?

What if he has more money overseas than here?

What if he attempted to get a $77k tax break because of horse dancing?

Point taken. With numerous substantiated reasons for him not wishing to release his returns, I don't need to go dancing with wolves.

Oh, I didn't mean to be snooty -- and I hope you didn't take it that way

I just totally agree with you....I don't know if there's one thing in there that's going to embarrass him. I think there's a whole lot of embarrassment waiting for him.

I think the biggest thing would be if he has A LOT more $$$ than his 2010 returns showed. If he's actually a billionaire, but has let us all believe that he's a $250 millionaire, that would be curtains on his campaign

I wouldn't buy a used car from Mitt, let alone trust him on his tax returns to say nothing of running this country. He acts as if he is Royalty and stupid Royalty at that.

The man has tens of millions--perhaps one hundred million--in his IRA. The only way to do that is to lie about the value of what you are putting in. It is like depositing two-dollar lottery tickets in your IRA after discovering that they are winners, and declaring their value as two dollars.
