I noticed the following quote on the front page of several newspapers and heard the quoted comment on one news broadcast.
Republican candidate says he will not release more tax records
but his own review shows 'I never paid less than 13%' in the last decade
A review of my taxes shows that I never paid more than 58% plus whatever ridiculous amount I owed in US taxes, because of a legal trick called minimum alternative tax (this is the opposite of tricks used by rich guys to avoid taxes). That’s a clever way of extorting money from citizens living overseas, who pay taxes to a nation that has an offsetting tax agreement.
I have no sympathy for Baseball Glove, who has become wealthier because of tax laws. I have failed to become wealthy and ended up less well-off because of US and German tax laws.
