    news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/romney-release-2011-tax-return-paid-irs-14-181125301--election.html

    "The Romneys paid $1,935,708 in taxes on $13,696,951 of mostly investment income for an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent."

    I cannot find the definition from this dictionary

    -- learnersdictionary.com/search/for

    that fits the sentence. Could it be that "for" is used incorrectly?

    Yes, it's right. You can replace 'for' with 'giving' if you need to.
