Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Refuses To Pay Her Taxes From Her Failed Business Venture

on

Democratic New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hoping to raise taxes for Americans, in fact she’s mentioned a 70% marginal tax rate.

And that’s not all she’s trying to impose on Americans, but the main issue is the fact that the freshman congresswoman hasn’t paid all of her own taxes yet.

Via the NY Post:

Brook Avenue Press, a company she founded in 2012 to publish children’s books in The Bronx, owes the state $1,870.36 in corporate taxes, public records show.

The state slapped the company with a warrant on July 6, 2017, two months after Ocasio-Cortez announced her candidacy to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley for the district that encompasses parts of Queens and The Bronx.

The state requires businesses to pay a corporation tax on a sliding scale based on revenue. The minimum payment last year was $25.

“The company probably got numerous letters from the state and probably ignored them,” a new York City accountant hypothesized.

According to public records, the company was dissolved by the state in October of 2016.

This generally happens when a business is unable to pay all their corporate taxes or fail to file a return.

The state Tax Department will not comment on individual companies, however they generally file warrants as a last ditch effort after they have previously tried to collect tax money.

Chicksonright.com reports,

“The NY Post inquired about the tax delinquency almost three weeks ago and a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez told them that the taxes would be taken care of immediately.

But they still haven’t been paid, according to the Post.

When they asked Ocasio-Cortez’s spokesperson Corbin Trent about it, he said that Ocasio-Cortez’s lawyers were looking into it.”

“I’m her congressional staffer, not her personal accountant,” Trent answered.

The publishing business attempted to “develop and identify stories and literature in urban areas like New York, specifically communities like The Bronx” and was able to snag a spot in an article about “getting cheap office space in subsidized government program to help small businesses,” Breitbart reports.

The Post reports that the business never published any books.

Seize any and all assets to auction off and pay the tax bill. Then seize her pay for anything left over. She is NOT above the law.

This should not surprise a anyone. She is a dimwit demo who only cares what she can take from this country. Or some of her idiotic ideas that have no reality. She lives in a dream world. Maybe she can go back to where she came from. She is a taker. She has done nothing for this country.

Taxes and inconvenient things like that are for the masses not the political Elite. Paying taxes seems to be something Democrats like AOC and Al Sharpton ignore. But, hey, duck them and see how fast the Swamp Creatures have YOUR butt in tax court!

WHAT???? She is in congress making $174,000 a year and she can't pay the taxes on her previous business? Excuse me she IS NOT above the law--give her an ultimatum that she either pay in full or serve time in prison for tax evasion. This really doesn't surprise me as ALL DumboRATS think they can do anything and it's okay--WRONG!!!

She is a worthless talent-less Congressperson, who won because her district didn't have a more worthwhile candidate than a former barmaid. She is a cheap a - -, who won't pay her bills. What more can I say?

Lock her up! She took lessons from Hillary. AOC never actually published any books. Yet she earned enough to owe $1,870.36 in taxes to New York. Hillary collected billions from "donors" for her "charity", but only gave a few thousand to actual needy people. The rest went to her friends hired to run the charity and her daughter who was paid about $800,000.00 per year for a no-show job, and Hillary paid for Chelsea's million dollar wedding, all paid for from her charity. Then Hillary and Bill were able to buy several multimillion dollar houses. That was from someone who says they left the White House, broke. All Democrats think alike when it comes to stealing money.

Another idiot that thinks because she is in Congress that she doesn't have to pay her taxes. I remember her stating that she wasn't going to pay her student loan also. Aren't you suppose to set an example but you just seem to think you can do whatever you want. Time to throw this little girl in the slammer for tax evasion, and the sooner the better.

It was probably a scam to start with. But she is Democrat / "Progressive" so what does any one expect.

Sad, how struggling families who earn less than $50,000 per year are the one’s targeted for IRS audits for failure to pay due taxes. They get what little money they have put on hold, property levied or collected by the federal government while being continuously threatened with prison time. Yet political elites like This Cortez who owes the state of New York Cooperate taxes refuses to pay believing as a member of Congress, this is an added benefit of not paying something which is owed. Then there’s the notorious Al Sharpton, who owes millions to the IRS simply refuses to pay because “He” says it’s racists. If that’s the case why doesn’t all of us proclaim that same excuse and leave the IRS or individual state wanting? Yeah! That sounds good, let’s not have to pay any taxes whatsoever.

What about the taxes the Rev Al. SHARPTON owed and owes today but Obama had him running around the W H like he was a king. Willie Nelson, Dotty West, that actor some went to prison, some lost everything to pay their taxes. What is wrong with America. Some pay but the elite don't.
