Sharpton Inc. Owes Millions in Taxes


al-sharptonRev. Al Sharpton has become a political ally of New York City’s mayor and President Obama, but he and his charity owe the government millions in taxes.

A New York Times investigation shows that he owes more than $4.5 million in current state and federal taxes on his personal income and his for-profit companies, Raw Talent and Revals Communications. Sharpton has more than $3 million in personal federal tax liens and state tax liens of $777,657. Raw Talent owes a combined $717,329 on state and federal tax liens.

His nonprofit National Action Network also failed to pay federal payroll taxes. NAN’s tax liability grew from $900,000 in 2003 to nearly $1.9 million by 2006. It also took on a questionable role during Sharpton’s 2004 run for the presidency, which may have violated FEC regulations.

Among the other financial issues in Sharpton’s past, he has a very questionable history of paying rent, often evading payment for personal housing and professional office spaces. Read more at The New York Times.
