Romney Claims He's Paid at Least 13% in Taxes
GREER, S.C. (AP) - Mitt Romney says he's never paid less than 13 percent of his income in taxes during the past decade.
Romney told reporters Thursday in South Carolina that Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's claim that Romney paid no taxes in some years is, quote, "totally false."
Reid had claimed it was possible Romney was refusing to release more than two years of returns was because Romney didn't want to reveal that he had paid no taxes.
Romney said: "Every year I've paid at least 13 percent."
He says he's also given generously to charity and that, including those contributions, he's given up more than 20 percent of his income each year.
Romney has released his 2010 tax return and says he'll release his 2011 return before the Nov. 6 election.
