It would appear that Melissa Harris-Perry has been avoiding paying her taxes because earlier this month, she and her husband were hit with a tax lien for $70,000 in delinquent taxes. She cites “a series of personal crises” as the reason for falling behind in her payments. (And I hate to break it to her, but everyone deals with personal crises, but the good majority of us still manage to make our tax payments on time.)
The Internal Revenue Service has placed a tax lien on Melissa Harris-Perry and her husband, James Perry, for about $70,000 in delinquent taxes, according to a notice filed in Forsyth County Hall of Justice earlier this month…
In an email Wednesday, Harris-Perry said she was unaware of the tax lien but knew about the debt. She said she and her husband paid $21,721 of the debt when they filed their taxes Wednesday. The remaining debt, $48,581, covers a tax period ending Dec. 31, 2013, according to the notice.
Harris-Perry said she and her husband had been working to pay off the debt but had to deal with a series of personal crises that caused the couple to pay off the debt a lot slower than expected.
What is it with MSNBC hosts and not paying their taxes? For people who love government so much, you would think they’d be tripping over themselves to pay their taxes and keep their Messiah funded. I mean, those excessively intrusive government programs you love so much aren’t going to pay for themselves, so chop chop!
And to Melissa specifically; let’s be frank, shall we? Life is hard. That’s just a universal truth. It’s even more difficult when you’re a two-faced hypocrite, so how about you shut up about what WE should do until you have all your ducks in a row for a consistent period of time? Report the news, get paid, pay taxes, repeat.
