The Republican presidential nominee is now promising that he will cut taxes for Americans with incomes above $200,000 and eliminate all taxes for the middle class.
The plan is part of a campaign promise he made last summer to eliminate all tax breaks for the wealthy, as well as eliminate the estate tax.
The tax cuts were a centerpiece of Romney’s presidential campaign, and the president is expected to sign a budget next week that will eliminate many of the tax breaks and make some of them permanent.
In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Romney said he would keep most of the income tax cuts he signed as president and that he wouldn’t eliminate all of the inheritance tax.
He also said that he is “not a fan” of the estate taxes, which are used to collect the tax, but would keep them.
“We’re not going to eliminate the [estate] tax,” he said.
“I would not.”
However, he would eliminate the individual and corporate tax rates.
Romney’s campaign has not released his tax returns since the start of the year, but he has a history of filing personal tax returns.
His campaign has said that his returns were filed with the help of a tax preparer, and that his tax filing status has changed over the years.
The campaign did not respond to a request for comment from The Associated Media.
A spokeswoman for Romney did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment about the plan.
