N.Y. Post: Sharpton, Businesses Owe $4.7 Million in Tax Debt

Nina Schutzman, Poughkeepsie Journal, August 3, 2014

The Rev. Al Sharpton, along with his nonprofit National Action Network and two for-profit firms, have $4.7 million in outstanding debt and liens, according to federal and state tax records, the New York Post reported on Sunday.

Among the debts include $806,875 that Sharpton owes the state, along with $2.6 million in federal liens against him for unpaid personal income taxes, the Post stated.

Recent filings showed the National Action Network owed $813,576 to the federal government at the end of 2012, and his company Rev-Al Communications owes $447,826 to the state, while the Bo-Spanky Consulting firm has $18.21 in outstanding debt, according to the Post.

Sharpton told the Post he’s paying down the debts according to negotiated agreements.

“It’s significantly less. It’s nowhere near the millions of dollars. We have totally lived up to our agreement with them,” Sharpton the Post. “It’s being paid down.”


Over the years, Sharpton endured tax evasion charges; disclosures of his work as an FBI informant; and allegations that his rhetoric about “white interlopers” incited an arson attack on a white-owned Harlem business that left eight people dead, according to Poughkeepsie Journal archives.

The Post reported that Sharpton’s recent Federal Election Commission filing shows an outstanding balance of $208,000 with the Federal Election Commission for improperly taking campaign money and government matching funds during his 2004 presidential bid.

  • Who would hire a consulting firm called Bo-Spanky?

    • MekongDelta69

      And they owe a Grand Total of $18.21 and can’t even pay that!

      What’s their number? I’m calling them right now to hire them!!

      • 314-7….

        ….oops, that’s my firm. My mistake.

        Just instinct.

      Any company who would rather pay a bribe to Sharpton to avoid negative publicity.

      What was the name of the Divinity School the good revum attended? Oh shucks, I forgot he was ordained at the age of nine…sort of Affirmative Actioned in.

  • MekongDelta69

    I’m sure Jesse Hi-Jackson, Calypso Louie “The Spaceship” Farrakhan, and Harry “Day-O” Belafonte are rushing to his aid as we speak.

    Not to worry AmRen readers. We will be picking up the tab.

  • Billy O’Reilly used to take this mud-skin charlatan seriously by having him on The Factor to deliver his nonsense to an audience of millions. I stopped watching Bill O as a result. It feels good not to have to listen to Sharpy, but I get nostalgic for Bill. Once in a decade.

    • bilderbuster

      You get nostalgic over Blowreilly?
      I hope you get well soon.

    Mark Simone was playing a recording of Al Sharpton trying to read a teleprompter and remarking how Reverend Al is functionally illiterate. A reading teacher of some sort remarked that Al read at the 3rd grade level. Yet, all by being a trouble maker and black made him a millionaire. Only in America.

    We have totally lived up to our agreement with them…It’s being paid down

    Anyone here believe that?

    Sharpton will never pay taxes. He’s black and, according to “his own self,” exempt from White man’s laws:

    “If we do not have a justice system that protects us, what are we paying taxes for?”

    —Al Sharpton.

    Sharpton has never apologized for the way he conducted himself throughout the Brawley hoax, because to apologize would be “all about submission” to white people eager to “force a black man coming out of the hardcore ghetto to his knees.”

    And for this, he gets his own show on MSNBC.

    • “If we do not have a justice system that protects us, what are we paying taxes for?”
      –Al Sharpton

      Since the majority of the victims of violent black criminals are also black, a justice system that locks up those violent black criminals *IS* protecting idiots like $harpton.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Malcolm X comes to mind.

    • NotTooSwift

      We need an Affirmative Action Plan for black mistresses. Makes sense to me.

  • In spite of the fact that they are often singled out for attacks by blacks solely because they are Jews – like the late Mr. Rosenbaum – most US Jews are very much in favor of strict NYC-style handgun-control laws. That doesn’t make any sense to either.

    • benvad

      They want the gentile as one entity, that’s what their holy books teach them. I don’t believe in their religious goal at all, I believe whites or anyone else for that matter, should live by their own rules and not to be interfered with.

    • Xerxes22

      Most Jews see themseves as stlll trapped in some east European shtetl surrounded by angry White Gentiles who want to destroy them all. The Cossaacks are coming, that sort of thing.They see Whites as potential fascists, who will one day take their guns and march on the capitol and overthrow the government like in the 1920s and 30s in Europe. Execept that never happened. As long as most Jews regard theselves as outsiders,they will never assimilate and think and act like Americans. They will always be trying to destroy us.

      • If Islamic immigration increases in a significant way, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a shift to the right by more and more significant Jews. With their brilliance at propaganda, organizing and general political savvy, it could cause massive political change. Strange bedfellows have operated successfully before.

    • bilderbuster

      They’re not above sacrificing a few of their own for the benefit of the tribe.
      Unlike the White sellouts who will sacrifice their nations to benefit themselves.

  • benvad

    They’re willing to sacrifice their own occasionally to further troublemakers like Rev Al. Destroying white America is long term project, and you can’t expect Lefty professors to the only agitators, do you?

    True story. I was not familiar how to use Sirius radio. My daughter and I were trying it in my new truck. I pushed the voice button and said, ” 40’s Big Band”. Billy Joel (yuk) came on, I tried again, same thing. So I tried “40’s Hits”. On came some ganster rap. I says”Are you kidding me”? I pushed the button again and said, “n?g?e? chit” and on came Al Sharpton.

    • newscomments70

      I was once in Palm Springs and passed by a “40’s Big Band” lounge. I walked in, expecting to hear that type of music. Instead i heard gangsta rap….I’m not sure how that works.

      • Alexandra1973

        Maybe the problem is with the number 40–as in forty-ouncers….

        • newscomments70

          Perhaps. I believe that the majority are choosing decay and desecration over decency, including whites.

  • NotTooSwift

    That guy Donald “Hairdoo” Trump was praising Rev. Al on Fox News Monday. Considers Al a friend, states he is not that bad in private and that he is just doing his thing.


    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      I heard Juan Shamnisty (Sean Hannity) call Al Sharpton his “Great Friend” one day on the radio.

      Turned off Juan’s show and haven’t listened since.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    They sure do. The cultural marxists love him because he bashes White people.

    I’ll never forget what he’s done – and I hope other Whites won’t either.

    From Larry Elder’s Al Sharpton’s Rap Sheet:

    Central Park Jogger: Sharpton charged that the jogger’s boyfriend did it, and organized protests outside the courthouse, chanting, ‘The boyfriend did it!’

    Twana Brawley: Al Sharpton, during the infamous Tawana Brawley case, falsely accused a former assistant district attorney, Steve Pagones of raping and sodomizing Ms. Brawley.

    Crown Heights: Sharpton led 400 protesters through the Jewish section of Crown Heights, with one protester holding a sign that read, ‘The White Man Is the Devil.’

    Freddy’s Fashion Mart: Sharpton said, … ‘we will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.’ One of the protesters, a black man, stormed Freddy’s Fashion Mart with a pistol, screaming, ‘It’s on now! All blacks out!’ In addition to shooting, he set fire to the building, eventually killing himself and seven others.

    Even after all this, Sharpton is rewarded with his own TV show, given access to the White House and applauded and lauded by the media and Washington.

    Larry Elder is black, BTW.

  • bilderbuster

    Sharpton has been an FBI operative since before Twana Brawley just like Jessie Jackson is and most likely MLK was too.
    That would explain the real reason MLK’ s files will remain sealed forever.
