US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise taxes on all Americans to pay for her simpleminded socialist programs…She just doesn’t want to pay her taxes.
The next time AOC cries about how the rich aren’t paying their fair share in taxes. We can respond ‘fair or not, at least they’re paying their taxes.’
As we reported in 2017, the New York State Tax Department filed a warrant against Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez for not paying her $1,618.36 unpaid tax bill from her now-defunct business.
As of this date Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s tax warrant had still not been satisfied. And according to the NYS Tax Department, AOC’s $1,618.36 unpaid tax bill has now grown due to penalties and interest to $2,088.78.
7-years ago AOC founded Brook Avenue Press, a publishing house that sought designers, artists, and writers from urban areas to help positively paint The Bronx in children’s stories, in 2012.
AOC took advantage of a New York City program that gave financial help to young companies by providing low-cost rent.
Of course, like every good socialist democrat she took the hand out but when it was time to pay the check, she skipped out leaving the taxpayers on the hook for her bill.
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.
Public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016.
At the time of our original report AOC spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, Corbin Trent, stated ago that the Congresswoman’s lawyers were looking into the matter.
But Corbin assured us that AOC’s tax bill would be paid right away.
Of course, now she could easily pay her tax bill should after landing her $75,000-a-year taxpayer-funded job in Congress.
But on Thursday, after asking why AOC hasn’t paid her tax bill her aide snidely remarked: “I’m her congressional staffer, not her personal accountant.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Thinks She’s Above The Law
“She just thinks she’s better than everyone else. Clearly, she’s worse,” said Hank Sheinkopf, spokesman for AOC’s chief June primary-race opponent, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.
But Ocasio-Cortez’s camp says the rep is challenging the $2,088.78 bill because it was issued “in error.
What makes AOC failure to pay her $2k tax bill even more pathetic is the fact that the FEC is investigating AOC for siphoning off millions in campaign donations into her illegal PAC run by AOC and her former chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti.
So without a doubt between her salary, and her pilfering of campaign donations Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can easily do what every other American must do…Pay her taxes.
