Ocasio-Cortez has become a national celebrity since being elected to Congress in 2018. Her annual salary as a congresswoman is $174,000, and who knows how much more she makes as a celebrity, as America’s Socialist It-Girl.
The tax bill itself is seven years old, and the warrant was issued in July of 2017, which was two months after AOC launched her congressional bid. At that time, the unpaid taxes amounted to $1,618. Interest and penalties have increased the bill to the amount to $2,088.

2k with her salary? Jeez, I make just a bit more than her and my tax bill this year is over 7k. The payment will be sent on July the 14th of course, because why not let that money work for me first. Just pay it, when you make that much money a 2k hit isn't even enough to make you flinch I assure you.

A few years ago, if memory serves, when the question came up with Trump, you and I had a conversation in which you echoed Trump’s statement that it’s an American’s duty not to pay any more taxes than they have to.
I’d link it but frankly it’s not worth it.

Seems like there is more to this story. 7 years for less than 2k.
This is a corporate tax i believe and i wonder if the people working for her are choosing to fight it, rather thsn AOC. That would make more sense.
I know people are eager to make fun of AOC, but i just don't see why a congresswomen would have the time to fight such petty things unless she had people who do all that for her.
