Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants Americans to pay more taxes, even though she hasn’t paid her own back taxes from 2012.
A book company AOC founded in 2012 to publish children’s books in the Bronx still owes New York State over $1,870 in corporate taxes, according to public records uncovered by the New York Post.
The state dissolved her company, Brook Avenue Press, in October 2016, presumably due to its failure to pay corporate taxes or file a tax return.
In typical socialist fashion, Ocasio-Cortez’s little “book-publishing company” got cheap office space as part of a city-subsidized program.
However, there are no records of Brook Avenue Press ever having published a single book.
Accountant: Ocasio-Cortez Ignored Tax Warrants
Ocasio-Cortez ignored a July 2017 tax warrant from the state demanding payment of her delinquent taxes.
“The company probably got numerous letters from the state and probably ignored them,” one New York City accountant said.
Naturally, Ocasio-Cortez’s camp claimed ignorance of the entire matter.
“This is the first we’re hearing of it, and we won’t have any additional comment until we look into it,” said AOC’s spokesman, Corbin Trent, said March 9.
