Whatever happened to paying one’s fair share?

The New York Post is reporting Saturday that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who likes to be called just Cortez, still hasn’t paid an outstanding tax lien from 2012 left over from a failed business venture.

If true, will she blame the conservative media that is obsessed with her for bringing it to light or maybe go with the angle that a conservative paper just can’t handle a strong woman and has to put her down?

Isabel Vincent reports:

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 spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, who has called for sweeping tax hikes on the rich, told The Post two weeks ago that the taxes would be paid right away.

But they haven’t been paid right away. Doesn’t she know what a poor school district could do with $1,877.56?
