Earlier today, The Washington Post received an envelope from an anonymous source containing the tax return of a man by the name of "Ritt Momney." The return is a one-page 1040EZ form.
In the somewhat illegible and confusing document, Mr. Momney, whose return was prepared by Sears-based franchise H&R Block, claims a 2010 gross income of $22 million, yet he claims the government owes him a refund of $21,999.999.99. Mr. Momney claims this coincidence is due to a $22 million operating loss involving his main business; running a ski school for blind kids in the Cayman Islands. (The box asking for a three dollar contribution toward the presidential election fund was left blank.)
Below are a few of the decipherable highlights:
NAME - Ritt Momney
SPOUSE - Don't Remind Me!
HOME ADDRESS - Which one?
FOREIGN COUNTRY - Sucks to be them!
SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER - 867-5309.
Line 4 - ADJUSTED GROSS INCOME - It is Gross!
Line 5 - CHILDREN/DEPENDENTS - Robots
Line 12 - AMOUNT YOU OWE - $0 (Whew!)
Line 14 - OCCUPATION - Wealthy American.
Line 15 - WIFE'S OCCUPATION - Compulsive Shopper.
Line 16 - DAYTIME PHONE - I sleep in.
