It has been discovered that all the businesses that race-baiter and MSNBC talking head Al Sharpton has started has been closed because of non-payment of taxes.
In the report at National Review by Jillian Kay Melchior, it was revealed that every for-profit company Sharpton has started has been forcibly shut down by one tax jurisdiction or another because he never paid his taxes.
Records show that Sharpton’s beleaguered for-profit entities often overlap and intertwine, some sharing ties with the reverend’s nonprofit organization, National Action Network. Their financial records are copious, confusing, and sometimes outright bizarre, and together, they depict persistent financial woes for Sharpton, who also personally owes New York State nearly $596,000, according to active tax warrants.
“He clearly appears — based on the information that’s available to us — to have a history of noncompliance with tax obligations,” says Bernadette Schopfer, the director of taxation at New York’s Maier Markey & Justic, a certified public-accounting firm that has had no dealings with Sharpton or National Action Network. “It appears that [Sharpton] does not file [taxes for his businesses], and then opens up something else. At all the entities we see he has opened up, he has not been compliant with the obligations of the owner of a business. . . . He’s either willful in his behavior, or he’s just sloppy.”
But it is the same with his personal taxes, too. It is well known that he owes at least $4.5 million in back taxes that he still has not paid nor made any provisions to pay.
Why does this hate-pushing, charlatan get away with all this?
I noted in December that Sharpton gets away with this because he is an extortionist. He has built a business threatening corporations into donating large sums of cash to his fraudulent charity groups in exchange for his magnanimous decision not to boycott them or protest their “racist” policies.
Of course, if this man was a conservative or a Republican he’d already be in jail.
