FIGURES. Company Founded by Ocasio-Cortez Still Owes $1,870 in Back Taxes
A good Democrat.
This comes as no surprise.
Socialist darling and nutcase Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still owes $1,870 in back taxes for a company she founded in 2012.
And yet she wants to raise your taxes by 100% to pay for a her green new deal and kill off cows.
The New York Post reported:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to pass sweeping tax hikes on the wealthy, but the freshman lawmaker might want to take care of her own unpaid tax bill first.
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,” one New York City accountant theorized.
