BREAKING: Bad News For Al Sharpton Over His Refusal to Pay Taxes

He can't be happy about this

Every time Rev. Al Sharpton opens a for-profit business, it eventually gets shut down because of its refusal to pay taxes, according to a new report.

In the wake of a story in The New York Times last year that Sharpton owed millions of dollars to various state and federal agencies because of his refusal to pay taxes, his business enterprises have come under increasing scrutiny — not by the mainstream media or President Barack Obama’s IRS, of course, but by conservative outlets like The National Review.

Jillian Melchior of The National Review appeared with Greta Van Susteren on Monday’s “On the Record” to describe the serial tax evader’s history:

Melchior told Van Susteren that every single business Sharpton has owned has been shut down for failure to pay taxes, failure to file tax paperwork or both

“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,” The National Review wrote in the report cited by Fox News.

“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,” it continued.

And that’s on top of the sums owed to the federal government — $3 million or so, The New York Times reported in November.

“He clearly appears — based on the information that’s available to us — to have a history of noncompliance with tax obligations,” Bernadette Schopfer, director of taxation at New York certified public accounting firm Maier Markey & Justic, told National Review Online.

“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,” she added.

“He’s either willful in his behavior, or he’s just sloppy.”

I’ll let you decide which you think is the case, but despite “numerous queries” from NRO over a period of several days, Sharpton made no comment on the report.

Sounds to me like a man with something to hide, but with increasing scrutiny of his own and his businesses’ failure to meet the obligations of every American business owner, he may find his illegal activities in the spotlight soon.

That’s assuming we can find a mainstream media outlet with the courage to withstand the baseless accusations of racism that will inevitably follow from covering this story, of course.
