Al Sharpton Doesn’t Pay Taxes Either

Hat tip to Sweetness and Light for this one, which appeared in Saturday’s New York Post:

Treasury Department officers say Sharpton owed $351,798 from 2007, according to a document filed March 3 with the New York County Register Office.

This unpaid balance — a potential mix of back taxes and penalties — comes on top of a federal lien filed last Nov. 13 for $1,367,521 covering tax years 2005 and 2006.

All the liens are filed as “1040″ or personal income tax and listed his address as 680 Madison Ave. — the uber-swanky Helmsley Carlton House where Sharpton resides.

Last July, Sharpton cut a deal with federal prosecutors in Brooklyn to end a longstanding criminal probe of his finances that reportedly encompassed his personal fortune, his quixotic 2004 presidential campaign spending and the National Action Network, his advocacy group.

[...]

Meanwhile, Sharpton also owes the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, which was not part of the July settlement, $884,669, according to two liens covering years 2002 through 2006.

Hardy said those debts are being addressed.

Sharpton reportedly earns $750,000 a year hosting a syndicated radio talk show. He also collects anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 per lecture and $2,000 per church sermon. On top of that, Sharpton does “consulting” work for corporations.

This guy is a crock and a crook, yet for reasons I still can’t fathom the left seems to adore him.
