Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hiding something in her taxes that could end her career

Democrats made a big to do about Donald Trump not releasing his tax returns.

But one of their rising stars is the one with the tax problem.

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is hiding something in her taxes that could end her career.

The New York Post has aggressively reported on the scandals and misdeeds of freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez, who has called for a “wealth tax” and other punitive measures to raise taxes on the so-called “rich” to make them pay “their fair share,” is the only one not pulling her own weight.

It turns out Ocasio-Cortez has not paid a seven-year-old tax debt related to a book publishing venture she founded back in 2012.

The New York Post reported that, “AOC had founded Brook Avenue Press, 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.

“As The Post previously reported, 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 then filed a warrant against her now-defunct business on July 6, 2017, over a $1,618.36 unpaid bill.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s spokeswoman Lauren Hitt disputed that Ocasio-Cortez owed any back taxes.

“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,” Hitt told The Post.

“As anyone who’s tried to contest a tax bill in error knows, it takes time,” Hitt also stated.
Ocasio-Cortez is facing a well-funded primary challenger.

Polls have also showed that Ocasio-Cortez is not wildly popular in New York.

And Ocasio-Cortez demanding everyone one play by one set of rules while she gets to ignore them could be a career killer.

    AOC isn’t the only one. The Minnesota Muslum did not use all her campaign funds to campaign. She is sitting on good bunch that is better then most peoples yearly income. Maybe if the truth be known all 5 of the “squad” is doing something similar

    How many past Presidents have owned businesses when they became President besides the very first Presidents who owned plantations. My husband and I own a business. We have Personal taxes and we have Corporate Business Taxes. Which tax forms are you demanding to see? If you requested to see our business tax forms-I would say no. As usual-you’re on a witch hunt and will use anything. Did the Clinton’s taxes show everything including where all the monies in the foundation came from and were spent. Yes or no. And that would be a no. Funny how all those large donations stopped when she didn’t make the Presidency. Or doesn’t that ring your bell. Clean your own party up or even make some attempt. The problem with the Democrats is they never go after one of their own for dishonesty and hold them accountable unless they vote the wrong way on the dem agenda. Get your party to go back to Congress and vote in person the way they are paid to do instead of trying to deflect.

    No, conservatives are biased: not holding Trump to the standard given other politicians.

    For the past forty years, it’s tradition that presidential nominees of both major parties release multiple years of their tax returns. They do this in part to guarantee to the public that there are no conflicts of interest.

    Donald Trump is refusing to, hiding behind a phony excuse that he can’t until the IRS finishes auditing him, a claim directly refuted by the IRS. What’s worse, in 2012, Trump was leading a call for the Republican presidential candidate that year, Mitt Romney, to release his own tax returns. As usual, Trump doesn’t want to be held to the unforgiving standards by which he judges other people.

    Scott27, you’ve used that accuse twice now blaming the website when that never stopped you before.
    I suspect its because you don’t really have an answer. You just talk in circles with no substance.
    I’ve also been reading your posts for a long time too, all the way back to when you said Trump violated the Hatch Act and was shredding the constitution. I don’t remember who it was that you were debating with but I do remember it was embarrassing and everyone saw it. Perhaps it was Debbie Downer or Uncle Hoppy. Regardless, you are not the astute person you pretend to be. And neither is your sidekick doctor J.D. with his silly poll numbers.

    She is a racist and believes she can brainwash the minority to believe that she cares for them as she try’s to have her cake and eat it too at america’s exspence. Typical AOC and the corupt dem party .

  7. Scott27 says:

    Fluffy… of course you’re not aware of those flaws. Perhaps large gaps is a better description. I’ve been seeing your posts for a while now, and those flaws/gaps are really not surprising, nor is it surprising you are blind to them. Since this site won’t post my explanation, I would just suggest you not use terms or language you don’t understand.

    What a Joke, really? Ever notice these words? “Could, Might, Maybe, Perhaps,” They use these little jewels to get us excited about how one of these swamp rats careers “COULD” be over. Simply put, not going to happen. Why? a couple of reasons. 1) These sewer rats are all protected by Soros & Co. 2) This is the big one; NO ACCOUNTABILITY! These people can blather on all they want, as all this amounts to is jaw music. And until these swamp creatures, along with the swamp queen herself is held accountable for what they have done, nothing will ever happen except to feed the citizens of America more useless jaw music. The time for talking has been over for years now. And still nothing is getting done to fix the common denominator – The Swamp Creatures.

    Does anyone really believe that the people of that New York Congressional district represented by AOC have enough sense to throw her out on her ass? They had to either be stoned or brain dead to have elected her in the first place and she has done nothing but show her ass ever since. I hope I am wrong about the people in her district and, if so, I will be the first to apologize. I won’t start writing an apology at this time.

  10. Only he has the right to call for a “tax on wealth” and other punitive measures to raise taxes on the so-called “rich” who pay their “fair share” themselves. AOС must either shut up or pay taxes.

    It doesn’t matter and not surprising. This party’s over. Let her have her 15 minutes of frame. She going to make a hell of a bartender someday!

    No one here… no one, has any standing to complain about anyone’s taxes while your dear leader continues to hide his.. in spite of his promise to release them. What the heck is he hiding that he doesn’t want you to see? It must be something significant given he’s willing to fight all the way to the Supreme Court to keep you from seeing it.

    1st OF ALL YOU IDIOT, NO-ONE “HAS” TO “SHOW” ANYONE THEIR TAXES, NOT EVEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! ONLY IN A “CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION”, EVEN THEN THEY ARE NOT TO BE PUBLISHED FOR THE PUBLIC TO SEE!!!
    THAT SHOWES HOW “DUMB” YOU ARE!!!

    As far as “Teeth” goes, her’s should NOT be published for the public to see either, and if the are “leaked” then you know the DemoRats will investigate and jail the offender, however, not IF it happened to the President though!!! DOUBLE standard, THATS how you DemoRats operate!!!
