- Just claim the over payment on next year's tax returns! Very craven, not smart at all.
- Also, giving more money to charities (the LDS church or Ann's charities in Boston) doesn't make you benevolent it means you manipulated the code for political advantage.
Romney’s tax return comedy - Salon.com:
First, Mitt and Ann Romney donated a whole heck of a lot of money to charity in 2011 — $4,020,772, to be exact, or about 30 percent of their total income. But they chose only to claim $2.25 million of that total as charitable deductions, because, well, otherwise their overall tax burden would have been a little, shall we say, light.
