Melissa Harris-Perry Owes $70K in Back Taxes; IRS Files Lien

By    |   Thursday, 16 Apr 2015 07:33 PM

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and her husband owe almost $70,000 in back taxes, and the IRS has filed a lien to recover the money.

Harris-Perry told the Winston-Salem Journal that she and her husband, James Perry, paid $21,721 toward their delinquent taxes on Wednesday when they filed their tax return. She also told the newspaper that personal crises had delayed their debt repayment; the debt is from the tax period ending Dec. 31, 2013.

“We were aware that we would continue to need to work to pay off the 2013 debt,” she said in an email to the Journal. Harris-Perry was unaware of the lien when the newspaper contacted her, but said they have a payment plan established with the IRS.

Harris-Perry, a noted liberal in her politics, was taken to task online about her failure to pay taxes.

“If anyone ever wondered why liberals get labeled hypocrites they need look no further than the queen of media progressives, Melissa Harris-Perry,” wrote BizPacReview.com. “This comes after years of lectures from the ultra-progressive activist/TV personality that high taxes are good thing, because as she argues, they pay for much needed entitlement programs the poor depend upon.”





Many news reports noted that Harris-Perry is the second left-wing MSNBC staffer to be delinquent in their taxes. Al Sharpton is in debt to the IRS for about $3 million.
