New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was questioned regarding her failure to pay an outstanding tax warrant.
The story was discussed in a Townhall.com op-ed that blasted her approach to her own taxes while blasting America’s policy.
Hmm… #Taxes must be only for the “little people” and not shrill congressional, socialist divas like #AOC. Reminder that this camera-hogging former barmaid from NY makes more $$ than do most Americans.
Why Hasn’t AOC Paid Her Outstanding Tax Warrant? https://t.co/2aR4PufzLa

“It’s not like AOC doesn’t have the means to pay the bill — her congressional salary, Tesla, and luxury apartment in D.C. all suggest that, even with its inflated balance due to nonpayment, she could easily pay the warrant and close the saga,” the op-ed stated.
“But she hasn’t, even while calling for ‘the rich’ to be taxed at higher rates and famously wearing a dress emblazoned with “TAX THE RICH” to the 2021 Met Gala,” it added.
NEW: New York state slapped a $1,618 tax warrant against AOC’s defunct business, Brook Avenue Press, five years ago today.

“New York state filed a tax warrant against Brook Avenue Press, a children-focused publishing house Ocasio-Cortez founded in 2012, on July 6, 2017, to collect $1,618 in unpaid corporate taxes. Ocasio-Cortez has yet to pay a penny of her overdue corporate taxes, causing the current balance of the tax warrant to swell by 52% to $2,461 as of Wednesday afternoon,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“New York dissolved Brook Avenue Press in October 2016, state corporate records show. The state filed its tax warrant against Ocasio-Cortez’s defunct business about two months after she launched her successful primary campaign against former Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY),” it added.
Ocasio-Cortez/AOC has yet to pay a penny of her overdue corporate taxes, causing the current balance of the tax warrant to swell by 52% to $2,461. But she quite rich and lives in a pretty nice luxury apartments in Washington DC.

AOC is quick to attack taxation but apparently slow to cover her own payment.
