    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    Deadbeat Olbermann Fails to Pay New York Taxes, State Issues Warrant

    New York State has issued a tax warrant against Keith Olbermann for failure to pay taxes on his humbly named personal corporation, Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc. Olbermann is listed in legal records as the President of Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc.

    A call to the Albany County Clerk's Office in upstate New York confirmed that the warrant is still outstanding and that Olbermann has still failed to pay his back taxes. State records show that Olbermann's company failed to pay $2,269.50 in state taxes. A judgement was entered against Olbermann last summer (Docket Date: 8/21/2007), just weeks before Olbermann closed on a a luxurious $4.2 mm condo at Trump Palace, at 200 East 69th Street.

    NYS Tax Warrant for Olbermann.jpg

    Keith Olbermann joins fellow comedian Al Franken on the list of prominent liberals who love to raise YOUR taxes but do everything in the power to avoid paying their own. Franken, running for the Democratic nomination for Senate in Minnesota was nailed two months ago for failing to pay his taxes. That report let to further investigations which turned up numerous examples of Franken skipping out on tax bills across 19 states for an amount totaling over $70,000. Franken was also fined $25,000 for failure to pay into state Workers Compensation fund. Minnesota Democrats Exposed has all the goods on Franken here.

    NOTE TO READERS: The Franken case initially involved one tax lien in one state but quickly mushroomed to cover 19 states. Any help we can get in searching local tax warrant databases in other states is appreciated. Send along any other tax liens against Olbermann or his front companies and we will add them here.

    UPDATE: Looks like we may have some more tax problems for Olbermann to report on tomorrow. We've got some leads but need to confirm with two state tax agencies.

    Reader Tim reminds us that earlier this month Keith was defending fellow left-wing comedian Al Franken (by attacking Bill O'Reilly...a twofer):

    Admonishing Bill, Olby said "if you say Franken owes 70,000 dollars in back taxes, you're lying. Franken paid the taxes. In fact, he overpaid the taxes. He just didn't pay them to the correct states. A traveling performer, like a comedian or lecturer or ball player, has to pay income tax everywhere he has a gig or game and Franken's accountant misled him on that. So he paid the taxes, but he paid them to Minnesota, and now he's paying them again to the other states. And you're a cheesy liar, Bill."

    Except that Franken kept changing his story and also ended up getting slapped with a $25,000 fine for failing to pay into the workman's comp fund (irony for the friend of the working man, right?). Whatever excuse Keith wants to make for Franken, Keith's tax warrant is STILL outstanding as of this moment and Keith is not a performer or ball player. So what's your excuse Keith? Did your accountant "mislead" you?

    UPDATE: Olbermann Tax Woes Mount, Extends to California, total now over $100,000

    UPDATE: Mark Levin Cites Olbermann Watch, Reports on Keith's Tax Cheating

    Where's Sharon Stone....I want to discuss this karma thing with her......oh yeah.

    Can you imagine how orange olby would get if O'Reilly didn't pay his taxes and had a warrant issued for him?

    Would the drooler get another tingle up his leg?

    I have a feeling this won't get a mention anywhere, but, here.

    Is a tax warrant the same as a tax lien?

    If so, why wasn't it executed when he bought his condo?

    LOL. Deadbeat moonbats. Add another to the list.

    Typical idiot. So interested in what everone else (Fox, Mcain, Oreilly, etc.) ad he is a law beaker.


    Another domino falls.

    Odds KO names himself WPITW as a tax evader? Or will he claim to be withholding payment in protest of the failed policies of Mr. Bush's fascist reign?

    BTW, nothing to report on the KOS front, as KO hasn't posted there since the 24th.

    The moonbat MSM has turned on Olby, Scott. He is lying low. MSLSD snitches are blaming the bad press and negative comments on Team David Gregory. Poor paranoid Team Olby.


    Read my post more carefully and it answers your questions - Is a tax warrant the same as a tax lien? If so, why wasn't it executed when he bought his condo.

    As Olby loves to say, "RESIGN!"

    So Oralmann is a tax cheat. LOL Typical fascist liberal scum bag. Olbermann has no problem with the bloated Federal government stealing everyone else’s money except his. It is funny that Olbermann has a shell corporation to hide his money from taxation called Olbermann Broadcasting Enterprises. Franken had the same scam going. What a joke. We can only pray that Olbermann is forced to do the perp walk out of 30 rock and is stuck in a cell next to Wesley Snipes. Hopefully the only network shown in that prison will be Fox News.

    Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit linked this post so to any non-OlbyLoon readers who are interested to become a registered commenter let me explain that we had a lot of problems with trolls and had to really clamp down on commenting. Registration is now required and we do not have open registration. We do, from time to time, invite people to send an email and request a login but a traffic day like today is not generally a good day to do that. If you are really interested you can bookmark this page or subscribe via RSS and just keep your eyes peeled for the next time we open comments.

    If you are interested to help us search other state tax warrant databases please shoot me an email at robert_a_cox at my yahoo account.

    dcmeyer, you are correct. Olby the hypocrite needs to RESIGN. He is the idiot-in-chief at MSNBC, which is saying a lot.

    This calls for a viral video and music mashup featuring Orangemann bellowing "RESIGN" at himself over a background of catchy electronic beats.

    I find it ironic that a guy who rails against the evils of American imperialism and corporations is the president of his own corporate empire.

    Didn't Orangemann listen to Miserable Marxist Michelle Obama when she implored an adoring crowd not to work for corporate America? Olby, you are slipping.

    Today I have read a lot of blog posts about Obama's Marxist and Socialist party ties. Very scary.

    Looks like an oversight. Chump Change for Olby, a juicy tidbit....we're not talking Al Franken though.

    However, if it was Bill-O, he would be WPITW.

    "A primary document of American history... Someday we will be teaching history from this." - Orangemann commenting on Scott McWeasel's book.

    Does Olbuffoon wonder why his network and fellow libs are turning on him when he makes preposterous statements like that?


    The Franken tax scandal started with ONE tax warrant for about $2,000. It took several weeks and lots of digging before it came out that there were actually tax warrants in 19 different states totally over $70,000 plus failure to pay into Workers Comp funds for which he was fined $25,000.

    Before rushing to judgement let's see where this thing goes. I am hearing from some folks that there are other tax warrants out there in at least two other states. This is only the beginning.

    I have a hard time believing "oversight." He lives in NY, works in NY. Probably pretty easy for the tax man to find him, just check under the desks at 30 Rock.

    This warrant is almost a year old. Surely, within the last year, someone would have notified the corporation that they are delinquent in taxes. In addition, the taxes due on this would be probably from, what, 2006? Assuming NY taxes are due in April, which I have no idea on, they wouldn't put a judgement on the Empire for two grand four months late.

    more coming
