It's not a sin to be rich, but how you got that way may make it so. Mitt Romney will not share his tax returns from the last 10 years even though his dad, Michigan Gov. George Romney, did when he was running for president. Is Mitt hiding something? Why not tell us if he has offshore accounts? How can someone wish to lead this country when he won't open his tax returns to prove he hasn't done anything questionable? If someone who avoids paying taxes on offshore accounts, rather then pay his fair share, wants to be president he should be honest with us about it. Lois Raimondi Munchel, Forest Hill

In his effort to be chosen as Sen. John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential election, Mitt Romney submitted 23 years of his tax returns to the McCain campaign - after which the senator and his staff rejected Mr. Romney and picked Sarah Palin instead. That decision ought to tell the American people something about Senator McCain's opinion of Mr. Romney as a potential president, about the contents of Mr. Romney's tax returns, or both. The minimum requirement for anyone asking Americans to give them the authority and responsibility of the world's most powerful position is to be completely open about their careers, their policies and their financial interests.

The records show that Garagiola and his wife reported earning $203,674 in total income in 2010, claimed $18,250 in exemptions and paid $29,166 in federal income tax. The bulk of the family's gross income, $114,642, came from Garagiola's work as an attorney for the Rockville-based firm Stein Sperling.

If Mitt Romney wants to shut Sen. Harry Reid up once and for all and prove him to be the dirty liar he claims he is, all he has to do is release his tax returns for the last 10 years ("Romney tax return battle sparks 'dirty' accusation," Aug. 6). President Barack Obama finally showed everyone his birth certificate after all, even though it was only kooks like Donald Trump who were asking to see it. So what is Mitt waiting for? He's only making himself look as if he's hiding something.

Letter writer Roger Kostmayer says of calls for Mitt Romney to release his tax returns that "the minimum requirement," for candidates for high office "is to be completely open about their careers, their policies and their financial interests. " Shouldn't the same be said about Barack Obama? The one hid his birth certificate and who won't release college records? I would bet if President Obama released all his information Mr. Romney would do the same. Clay Seeley, Owings Mills

Tax season is officially here, with the Internal Revenue Service and state of Maryland starting Tuesday to accept electronically filed returns. This is a good year for procrastinators. April 15 — the traditional due date for returns — falls on a Sunday and the following Monday is Emancipation Day, a holiday celebrated in Washington. This pushes the deadline to April 17. But this is also a leap year, so Feb. 29 gives us one more day to ponder our taxes. Many filers could use the extra time.

The attorney for ousted Anne Arundel County Councilman Daryl D. Jones said Monday her client made a mistake in failing to file tax returns for several years, but she said that after serving his time, Jones is "fit to be a lawyer and he is fit to be a member of the County Council. " Attorney Linda Schuett made the case for Jones in Annapolis before retired Circuit Judge Arthur Ahalt, who will determine whether Jones will get his seat on the council back. Jones, a Severn Democrat who was first elected to the County Council in 2006 and re-elected in 2010, was charged in August 2011 with failing to file several personal and business tax returns between 2002 and 2007.

For same-sex married couples in Maryland and elsewhere, filing taxes is about to change. The IRS announced recently that same-sex marriages will be recognized for federal tax purposes, even if couples live in states that do not permit gay marriage. This ruling, which takes effect Sept. 16, will have a broad impact, affecting estate and income taxes as well as financial protections for spouses in retirement accounts. "This is a major change," said Harry Atlas, a partner at Venable, a Baltimore law firm.

Older consumers are no more vulnerable to identity theft than others, but they do tend to be victims of the types of ID theft that are on the rise - cases involving tax returns and medical care. For that reason, the Federal Trade Commission held a one-day workshop last month on senior identity theft. And Howard County on Thursday evening is holding an identity theft forum that will cover fraud directed at both seniors and children. "Seniors are targeted because they have more disposable income," said Rebecca Bowman, administrator of Howard County's Office of Consumer Affairs, which is sponsoring the forum.

After listening to the news reports for the past week, I think I must be the only person in America who thinks that the IRS is supposed to look for people and groups who might try to evade taxes ("Taxing the tea party," May 13). I am an honest person (as are most Americans), and I file my taxes honestly. But even honest people admit that the fear of getting caught is also a strong motivator. Secondly, I think most people know that those who evade taxes are short-changing the rest of us because the government will have less money to give us the services we want and may end up raising taxes.

The chemical and fertilizer plant in the town of West, Texas, where at least 15 were killed and more than 200 injured a few weeks ago hadn't been fully inspected by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration since 1985. (A partial inspection by a different agency in 2011 resulted in $5,250 in fines.) OSHA and its state partners have a total of 2,200 inspectors charged with ensuring the safety of more than 8 million workplaces employing 130 million workers. That comes to about one inspector for every 59,000 American workers.

John Delaney, the Potomac financier running for the Democratic nomination in Maryland's 6th Congressional District, is worth between $51.8 million and $232 million, which would make him the 9th most wealthy member of Congress if elected, according to a financial disclosure statement released by his campaign Friday.
