Mitt Romney just filed his 2011 tax return. Nothing wrong with that; many take an extension to file, especially rich people with complicated returns.
Few people, however, work hard to jigger their return so they'll pay more income tax, as Romney did to keep his tax rate at 14 percent instead of the 10 percent it would have been had he claimed all of the $2.6 million he paid in tithing.
Most of us spend late hours figuring how to pay less. I agreed with Romney when last summer he said: "I don't pay more than are legally due and frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I don't think I'd be qualified to become president."
