A report recently released says Al Sharpton's businesses are all tax dodging !!

He apparently uses clever tricks and various incompetencies to avoid paying up.

He has plenty of advisors with experience in work arounds.

Many people like these tactics.

His admirers who follow the same rules might even end up in prison.

Report: Every Business Started by Al Sharpton Closed for Non-Payment of Taxes

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.”

Al Capone went to prison for not paying $200,000 in income taxes.
Al sharpton owes $4.5 million in taxes and gets invited to the White House.

Oh how the country has changed.

Thanks for posting this. WHY does anyone choose to follow a loser such as Sharpton?
People...Please wake up. This charlatan is literally stealing from the American people!
Rev. Al says he's all about why won't he pay HIS fair share?

Remember Tim Geithner?

He didn't pay his taxes for 3 years and they made him Secretary of the Treasury. By that logic, ol Al is in line for Secretary of State.

And yet, we are meant to be surprised by this?

You often find with the Al Sharpton's of this World, they have the tenacity to look at every loophole and take advantage of them. Probably lots cheaper to employ a top accountant with direct access to the C.E.O of the IRS. That certainly happens in the U.K and there was a scream of a scandal a few years back, but then Savile's debauched antics became public knowledge and seemed to hush it all up.

It makes you wonder if there is a power struggle amongst the Establishment, kind of corrupted paedophiles versus corrupted crooks. Each of them leaking dirty little secrets about each other, but no sign of an inquiry into either.

In fact it could even be a ploy from the Establishment to cause utter confusion in our lives, thereby breeding apathy. Apathy is the enemy of democracy and it's evident democracy should never be a two horse race.

He would never get a single penny from me. It's not the color of his skin as to why. It's the hate filled bull# that comes out of his hypocritical mouth. Texas, you rock!
