Our favorite Marxist is still fighting fines for unpaid taxes from 5 years ago, which is what she says the rich do so that's a bit sus

Who would have thought that this lady right here, the grand exalted AOC, would be fighting tooth and nail against the state of New York over a couple of thousand dollars of back taxes?

Yes, the "tax the rich" representative has fines and warrants for unpaid taxes from a now-defunct business she used to run.

Everyone needs to pay their fair share in taxes! Except for AOC who is going to go down fighting against the state of New York over what she claims is a mistake.

But, according to her philosophy, who cares if it's a mistake? Isn't paying more taxes a good thing.

From the Washington Examiner:

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.

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).

A representative for the Bronx County Clerk's Office confirmed to the Washington Examiner that the tax warrant against Ocasio-Cortez's business remains open.

The state has been waiting 5 years for this bill to be paid. And AOC hasn't given them a single red cent.

Maybe it's because she thinks she's lower-class and broke with her current salary.

More from the Examiner:

Ocasio-Cortez's office previously told the New York Post in March 2019 that the lawmaker first learned of the tax warrant against her former business after she was sworn into Congress in January that year.

Ocasio-Cortez initially pledged to repay her delinquent corporate tax bill, but her office later said the warrant was issued "in error" and that she was contesting the matter.

"The congresswoman is still in the process of contesting the tax warrant. The business has been closed for several years now, and so we believe that the state Tax Department has continued to collect the franchise tax in error," Ocasio-Cortez spokeswoman Lauren Hitt told the New York Post in May 2020.

"As anyone who's tried to contest a tax bill in error knows, it takes time," Hitt said.

Ocasio-Cortez identified herself as the founder of Brook Avenue Press in her 2018 financial disclosure filed with the House.

She really, really doesn't want to give the government any money she doesn't owe them.

This is literally the exact thing she demonizes the "millionaires and billionaires" for doing, fighting to keep as much of their money as they can. She wants to take your money while keeping all of hers.

Commies are gonna commie!
