Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez owes $1,870.36 in corporate taxes for her now defunct publishing company, according to the New York Post.
The paper cited public records in a report published Saturday.
Brook Avenue Press, a New York children's book publisher founded by Ocasio-Cortez in 2012, was issued a warrant in 2017 for the back taxes, the NYP reported. The newspaper also said public records indicate the company dissolved in 2016.
The freshman New York Democrat last week backed a proposal to tax stock trades. She also has called for a 70% tax on incomes that exceed $10 million.
