MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry perhaps the Anchor who makes the nastiest personal attacks, who journalistic peak came when she donned earnings made out of tampons (see below) is in trouble with the IRS. Probably forgetting she is an extreme liberal the IRS has placed a tax lien on Harris-Perry and her husband, James Perry, for about $70,000 in delinquent taxes, according to a notice filed in Forsyth County, North Carolina Hall of Justice earlier this month.
Harris-Perry is a well-known host of an MSNBC talk show and a professor at Wake Forest University. The IRS filed the notice April 6.
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.
“We were aware that we would continue to need to work to pay off the 2013 debt,” she said in the email.
Harris-Perry said the couple had an official payment plan with the IRS. She said she had not had any recent conversations with the IRS and doubted that she could reach the IRS Wednesday, the deadline for millions of Americans to file their income tax returns.
I wonder if Ms. Harris-Perry would avoided the debts if she didn’t spend so much money and tampon earnings. At the very least Al Sharpton has another MSNBC tax cheat he can talk to.
