Al Sharpton's "history of noncompliance with tax obligations"

Every for-profit enterprise started by Al Sharpton has been shut down in at least one jurisdiction for failure to pay taxes


So far, every for-profit enterprise started by Al Sharpton and known to National Review Online has been shut down in at least one jurisdiction for failure to pay taxes, a review of public records in New York and Delaware reveals. 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.”

  1. Commentary: Sharpton's Tax Follies: Clearly, Sharpton believes that taxes are for the little people. Just as clearly, the authorities fear going after him because of who he is and what he can do to them

  2. I'm surprised that Al has not gotten the "Brian William's" scrutiny that he deserves. Of course viewership of MSNBC is so weak that perhaps no one cares!

    So, When Does Al Sharpton's Suspension Begin?
    In light of Brian Williams sanction, MSNBC host's lies deserve review
