Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Sill Hasn’t Paid Tax Bill For Her Failed Business


Despite being the newest Democrat “It” girl, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still has not paid her outstanding tax bill for her failed 2012 business venture, a report says.

Ocasio-Cortez has made a name for herself as the anti-business crusader who wants to force business owners to “pay their fair share.” Yet she still hasn’t paid her own fair share for her now defunct business.

According to the New York Post, “Brook Avenue Press, a company set up in the Bronx to publish books about city children, owes $1,877.56 in unpaid corporate taxes.”

The State of New York has been trying to get Ocasio-Cortez to pay her final tax bill for years and as lat as July of 207 the state slapped a warrant on the Democrat congresswoman after she announced her run for Congress.

In fact, Ocasio-Cortez didn’t disband the company of her own volition, even.

Apparently, in 2016 New York taxing authorities cancelled her business licenses over her unpaid tax bill.

The paper got hold of the congresswoman’s staff and aide Trent Corbin gave a snide and curt reply saying, “I’m her congressional staffer, not her personal accountant.”

Corbin added that Ocasio-Cortez’ accountants are handling the matter.

They’ve done a bang up job so far, huh?

Not long after taking office, Ocasio-Cortez came out in favor of heavy taxes on “the rich.” The New Yorker was at the forefront of calling for confiscatory taxe rates on business people and the wealthy.

“The current debate kicked into overdrive in January, when Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old freshman representative who is not eligible to run for president because she’s six years too young, floated a 70 percent marginal tax rate for $10 million in income and above,” CNBC reported.

I guess taxes are for other people to pay, not for someone as exalted as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
