Bannon didn’t properly pay taxes for several years
It seems Steve Bannon is a tax scofflaw:
The new CEO of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign failed to properly pay his taxes for several years in the 1990s, according to an analysis of public records. …
According to public records, Bannon had five federal tax liens filed against him at his firm’s Beverly Hills office between 1994 and 1998, totaling $481,951. The federal liens were released by April 2000.
Bannon also had at least three state tax liens totaling $119,736 filed against him in the same period. It’s unclear whether the state liens corresponded to property taxes, income taxes or payroll taxes. Those liens were released by April 2000 as well.
Moreover, Bannon had a civil judgment lien filed against him for $84,075 by creditors in 2011, when he was serving as CEO of a firm called Affinity Media. He left Affinity the following year to serve as executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC, the parent company of Breitbart News.
