ACORN Owes Millions In Taxes

Author: Amanda Carpenter
Date Published: October 28th, 2008

An intrepid researcher has discovered more than 200 tax liens totaling more than $3.7 million have been filed by the government against the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now for unpaid taxes since the late eighties.

A tax lien is issued when a person or organization fails to pay taxes and that tax debt is considered seriously delinquent. A lien is only issued after the government makes several unsuccessful attempts to collect the debt.

The conservative-leaning Capital Research Center’s Matthew Vadum found a staggering number of liens listed against ACORN’s national headquarters at 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana while conducting an exhaustive investigation of ACORN's history and current activities.

“I took that address and plugged it into Nexis and did a public records search for tax liens,” Vadum said. “At least 230 tax liens corresponded to ACORN’s address and they were all from ACORN’s shadowy network of affiliates.”

EMFK: We are stunned that ACORN owes millions of dollars in unpaid taxes. After all, they're so honest when it comes to voter registration; it just floors us. We are deeply saddened that the Republicans continue to go after such an innocent non-partisan and non-profit organization. Please pass us a tissue! (Sarcasm is over!)
