Romney Paid 14.1% Tax Rate in 2011 (Update 1)
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Mitt Romney paid $1.9 million in taxes in 2011.
The Republican presidential nominee, who has been hounded by critics over a lack of transparency on his taxes, was taxed at an effective rate of 14.1%, according to files available on the candidate's Web site.
Along with his 2011 tax return, the campaign also posted a 20-year summary of Romney's tax filings from 1990 through 2009.
The candidate paid taxes on roughly $13.7 million in mostly investment income last year.
Beyond the taxes he paid, Romney and wife Ann donated $4 million to charity in 2011, $2.3 million of which they claimed as a deduction for charitable contributions.
The notarized summary from PricewaterhouseCoopers said that from 1990 through 2009, Romney and Ann paid an average annual effective federal personal income tax rate of 20.2%.
PricewaterhouseCoopers said it computed the annual "effective federal personal income tax rate" as total taxes owed divided by adjusted gross income as shown on the federal income tax returns.
The candidate and his wife's annual effective state personal income tax during the period was about 8.4%, according to the summary.
