Mitt is about to release a 20-year summary of his tax rates from 1990 to 2009.
His blind trust administrator claims that the average annual effective tax rate over those 20 years was 20.20%. He claims that the lowest rate over those years was 13.66%.
Mitt has already released his returns for 2010, along with an estimate for 2011. He is also going to release the actual returns for 2011, which will show a 14.4% effective tax rate.
Will this quell the call for release of more actual returns besides 2010 and 2011 or just intensify it? I’m guessing it’s the later.
A desperate modified, limited hangout that just begs for comparison to Richard Nixon.
