Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) owes $1,877.56 in corporate taxes – from six years ago – from a failed business venture.

Per The New York Post:
 

Weeks after The Post alerted the freshman Congresswoman’s office to the outstanding tax lien from 2012, she still hasn’t paid it, state records show.

Brook Avenue Press, a company set up in the Bronx to publish books about city children, owes $1,877.56 in unpaid corporate taxes.

The state slapped the company with a warrant on July 6, 2017, two months after Ocasio-Cortez announced her candidacy to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley for the district that encompasses parts of Queens and The Bronx.

Public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016, which can happen when a business fails to pay corporate taxes or file a return.


A spokesperson for the freshman representative, who has proposed dramatic tax hikes to support her Green New Deal, said two weeks ago that her taxes would be paid promptly.
