Why won’t Mitt Romney release his tax reforms? It may be because if the results are seen, it disqualifies him from the presidency…
Here is the shot of his 1999 tax return.

The important piece is to notice the date, and the address. Here is why.
Under Federal code you can only live in one state at a time.. If it is Utah, you can claim state and local tax breaks of Utah, not Massachusetts. If it is in Massachusetts, you can claim that state’s local tax breaks, but not those in Utah. Simply try having two homes, one in Maryland and the other in Delaware, and try getting a local price on a fishing license… “Sure you may pay property taxes in two states,…. but what state is on your license“, you get asked.
Romney in 1999….. $54,000 a year in Utah tax breaks, while taking the same in Massachusetts tax breaks and voting in Massachusetts.
Mitt voted in Massachusetts in 2000. Which fails as a violation of election law since he declared Utah on his Form 1040 submitted on January 3, 2000.
Mitt ran for Governor of Massachusetts in 2002. Which fails the Massachusetts Constitution residence requirement if he filed in Utah in 1999 or 2000 or 2001 on his Form 1040.
Therefore his Massachusetts term of governorship was illegal. He was not eligible to run for any Massachusetts office because he was a Utah resident in 1999.
Knowing the controversy swirling around our current president and the unfounded rumors of his holding office illegitimately over lack of proof of a certain residency, Romney is certainly not going to suffer the same fate. He is keeping his tax returns under wrap.
It all makes sense now.
