    Sharpton owes 4.t million in back taxes

    Al Sharpton cites one of the causes as his childrens "private school" tuition. What a fukkin hypocrite. Google it as well...




    Al Sharpton owes millions in state and federal liens, according to a New York Times report out today about the activist and MSNBC host’s finances.

    Sharpton owes more than $4.5 million and has “regularly sidestepped” his financial obligations, the report finds. His advocacy group National Action Network has not paid federal payroll taxes for years, and has “repeatedly failed” to pay money owed for travel and living arrangements.

    The report tracks not just Sharpton’s financial history, but its relationship to Sharpton’s rise from outsider activist to influential insider. And it also notes that the revenue from Sharpton’s group has spiked in recent years, coming in from plenty of corporate sponsors.

    The Times report even goes so far as to note that what Sharpton did is characterized by the Treasury inspector general as “‘abusive,’ or ‘potentially criminal’ if the failure to turn over or collect taxes is willful.’”

    Doesn't matter. The IRS is no longer an independent agency. He is good for at least two more years. Hopefully the next administration goes after him.

    Dont throw me in with those knuckleheads.

    I think its ridiculous that most people cant file their own return.
    The code should be easy...

    Its worse now..Obamacare has now made the easiest returns very difficult.
