Romneys paid $1.94 million in fed taxes for 2011

Campaign Issues

WASHINGTON (AP)—Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, paid $1.94 million in federal income taxes on 2011 income of $13.7 million, most of it from investments, for an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent, his campaign said Friday.

That's slightly above the 13.9 percent rate the couple paid for 2010.

The Romneys were to release their full 2011 returns late Friday.
