AOC On The Hook For Unpaid Taxes

Wochit Postables
Fox News reports that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t paid a 7-year-old tax bill left over from a failed business venture. AOC founded Brook Avenue Press in 2012. It was a publishing house that sought designers, artists and writers from urban areas to help paint the Bronx in a positive way in children’s stories, in 2012. Public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016. The state can make such a move when a business fails to pay corporate taxes or file a return. The state Tax Department filed a warrant against her now-defunct business on July 6, 2017, over a $1,618.36 unpaid bill. As of Friday, the tax warrant had still not been satisfied, and the outstanding balance had grown to $2,088.78, the department said.
