Romney Tax Plan

If you are looking for information on the 2010 taxes and what the Romney tax plan is if he wins the election, maybe this will help you.

One of the things that Romney said he does not want to do is cut taxes for the well off. He said that high income taxpayers will have fewer exemptions and deductions. He said that if those numbers didn’t come down, they’d get a tax break. Romney said that he is proposing a reduction in the tax rate but that he also wants to close exemptions and deductions at the high end so that the revenues will stay the same. He also wants to lower the heavy load on the middle income people. Another thing he wants to cut individual income tax rates, reduce tax preferences, reduce the corporate income tax, eliminate the estate tax, and more. As for the taxes enacted in the 2010 health reform legislation, he wants to repeal it and the AMT.

The plan would reduce the six income tax rates so that the top rate would go down to 28 percent and the bottom rate would go down to 8 percent. The Repeal of the AMP would increase tax savings from rate cuts.

Millions In Cayman Islands Investment Funds For Romney

TaxAct

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has disclosed that he has millions of dollars worth of investment funds set up in the Caribbean tax haven of the Cayman Islands. Romney, who has an estimated personal wealth of $250 million, has been paying a much lower tax percentage than most U.S. citizens: approximately 15% of his yearly income. He has previously kept his tax returns private, but financial transparency is now an expectation of presidential candidates.

Romney has a minimum of twelve investment funds containing as much as $8 million which are listed on the registry of the Cayman Islands, together with another investment on the securities records which he says has a worth of between five and twenty five million dollars which is also housed in the Caymans. Offshore banking and taxation authority, Washington lawyer Jack Blum has stated that Romney’s finances are an illustration of the faults of the tax system in the United States, calling them, “a poster child”.

However, Romney campaign officials insist that he follows full U.S. tax legislation and that wherever the investment funds were based he would still be paying the same amount. They maintain that the major reason for locating the investment funds offshore in the Cayman Islands was to attract foreign investors who would pay less tax, but that Romney himself has paid full U.S. taxes on the income that he received from the investment funds.

Rebecca J. Wilkins who is an expert on tax policy said that there is an estimated loss to the treasury of $100 billion each year as a result of investment funds situated in tax havens. However, she also added that the setting up of such offshore investment funds was neither illegal nor improper.

The Republican candidate Rick Santorum has a tax plan that would cut taxes, for Americans, but increase the budget deficit by nine-hundred billion in a year. This was reflected in a recent study. The more the deficit increases, the less the American dollars is worth. His plan is a short term fix, with no long term benefits.

The taxes 2012 Santorum plan would create a substantial tax cut of approximately seven-thousand and eight-hundred dollars for about sixty-nine percent of Americans. The problem with his proposal is that the households, which would benefit the most, are the richest ones in the country. Individuals, who make more than one-million a year, might receive a tax cut package of approximately four-hundred and forty-two, thousand dollars. Most households with an income of fifty-thousand to seventy-five thousand would receive about two-thousand and sixty-two dollars.

Santorum’s tax cuts are extremely beneficial to corporations, by cutting their taxes in half. Corporation that now pay thirty-five percent in taxes, would only pay around seventeen percent. The wealthy would get a lower tax rate on their investment income from fifteen percent to twelve percent. He would get rid of the marriage tax penalties and increase aid for dependent children. Single parent families would conversely receive tax increases. However, none of these tax changes would be fully established until 1215.

Rick Santorum’s budget will increase the deficit, benefit corporations, and the wealthy. It is time to stop writing checks on an empty account. The last thing this country needs is another short-sighted economic agenda.
