When you think of Al Sharpton, what words come to mind? Baptist minister? Civil rights activist? Talk show host? A lot of times he attacks others and give the impression he does no wrong.
A recent finding shows he earns a lot of money from his non profit organization. How does that work? And just like a lot of other loudmouth liberals, seems to owe money in taxes. How do they keep doing that? Insist the rest of us pay our ‘fair share’ (a favorite phrase of Obama lately) and not pay theirs?
The Rev. Al Sharpton’s nonprofit paid him nearly $242,000 — even as it carried $1.6 million in debt, according to documents obtained by The Post.
In all, the controversial activist and his empire, including the National Action Network and two for-profit companies, were $5.3 million in the red, public records show.
Most of NAN’s money woes stemmed from more than $880,000 in unpaid federal payroll taxes, interest and penalties. It also paid more than $100,000 to settle two lawsuits, byproducts of the unpaid bills.
And it still owed $206,252 in loans to Sharpton’s for-profit Bo-Spanky Consulting Inc. and Sharpton Media LLC, the records show.
Sharpton drew a $241,732 salary and perks that included first-class or charter air travel, tax filings show. He owes the IRS $2.6 million in income tax, and nearly $900,000 in state tax.
The defunct Rev-Al Communications Inc. owes the state almost $176,000, and Bo-Spanky is $3,500 behind on state-tax liens.
