Three House Democrats are among the 22 lawmakers delinquent on their taxes according to tax records.
State Reps. Al Williams, Winfred Dukes and Roberta Abdul Salaam were listed in the Department of Revenue records as owing taxes. Williams and Dukes both said they have done nothing wrong.
Williams, D-Midway, called the allegations he owed more than $42,000 in taxes “crap” and said his accountant concluded the state actually owes him $400.
Dukes, D-Albany, said he sent a check for $828.70 Thursday morning. He called it a “misunderstanding” over unearned income that wasn’t reported.
Salaam, a Riverdale Democrat who owes more than $600, was not at the Legislature Thursday and could not immediately be reached for comment. Read More
