Lefty Actor Robert Redford Not a Big Fan of Economic Patriotism

August 6, 2014

The last time I wrote about Robert Redford was over a year ago when his Weather Underground inspired film bombed at the box office.

Now he’s complaining about paying his Fair Share of taxes…

Robert Redford Sues New York State Over $1.6 Million Tax Bill Related to Sundance Channel Sale

Robert Redford is suing New York state related to the sale of Sundance Channel.

The actor-director sued the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance in Albany County Supreme Court on July 30 claiming that he’s being overtaxed on money his company made when it sold off a stake in the channel in 2005.

According to Courthouse News Service, Redford is being taxed $1.6 million by New York ($845,066 in taxes plus $727,404 in interest owed) on the money he made. But Redford, a Utah resident, says he paid taxes on the revenue in Utah and therefore doesn’t owe New York.

What kind of unpatriotic Tea Bagger does Redford think he is?

Doesn’t he know the state is entitled to his money?

Hat tip to Twitchy.
