Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is always whining about how the rich don't pay their share in taxes, but she has yet to pay a tax of her own.

The "squad" member still has not paid a tax bill from a failed business venture seven years ago, according to the New York Post

The socialist Congresswoman founded a publishing house - Brook Avenue Press - in 2012. Public records show the company was dissolved in October 2016, which usually occurs when a company does not pay corporate taxes or neglects to file a return.

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance then filed a warrant against the company in July 2017 over an unpaid tax bill of $1,618.36. The Post reports that, as of Friday, the bill has still not been paid and the balance now stands at 2,088.78.
