Unlike many of her colleagues at MSNBC, he paid them -- to the tune of $38 million, a rate of 25%.
From Heat Street:Congrats to Eric "Ebeneezer" Cantor for starving people on food stamps. Helluva victory for the 1 percent.— Chris Matthews (@HardballChris) September 19, 2013
Last summer, Maryland took out a lien against the Hardball host and his wife for nearly $4,000 before Matthews paid up.He was not alone in being served the lien cuisine.
Touré Neblett, who was fired by MSNBC in 2015, has had significant tax problems. According to public records from the NYC Department of Finance Office of the City Register, the IRS filed two separate tax liens against him for more than $257,000, covering the years from 2008-2012.
It’s unclear whether he has made any effort to pay off these tax debts, or whether they remain outstanding. Neblett did not respond to our media requests sent to his various social media accounts, and by deadline, his representative for speaking gigs had also failed to respond to our detailed inquiry.Ah, the Touré syndrome.
Good question:Should peeps earning a million $ or more a year pay more income taxes than those making less? Would a "millionaire's tax" help the economy?— Craig Melvin (@craigmelvin) September 19, 2011
In January 2016, New York filed a lien for more than $2,500 in back taxes against MSNBC daytime anchor Craig Melvin, which he didn’t settle until the final weeks of the year.
It’s not the first time Melvin has run into tax problems, either. In 2010, South Carolina — where he used to anchor local news — filed a tax warrant against him for more than $3,300, which has since been resolved. Melvin has also run into other financial problems, with Discover Bank taking him to court in 2005 over a $3,200 debt.In all, Heat Street found nine people who owed taxes when they worked at MSNBC while Maddow was there.
If they taxed media hypocrisy, the budget would be balanced.
