More on Bush-Cheney-Kerry Tax Returns

Monday, April 19, 2004

Jim Maule (Villanova) has an interesting take on the recently released Bush-Cheney-Kerry tax returns (recently blogged on TaxProf Blog here, here, here. here, and here). Maule compares their relative tax burdens as a percentage of AGI with some prior Presidents and finds no discernible pattern:

Bush II (2002): 31.4%
Cheney (2002): 29.2%
Bush II (2003): 27.7%
Carter (1977): 25.5%
FDR (1935): 25.1%
Clinton (1995): 23.9%
Kerry (2003): 22.9%
Cheney(2003): 20.0%
Bush I (1991): 15.5%

For the record, TaxProf Blog's was 15.1% Not bad, huh? (Who said those that can, do; those who can't, teach?)

When I posted the referenced data, I noted that it seemed that Franklin Roosevelt prepared his own income tax returns. I posted more on that topic today.

I'm going to try to put the link here.
