The Owners Of Zuccotti Park Owe $139,000 In Back Taxes

New York City says it has spent over $13 million on Occupy Wall Street protests, but the owners of Zuccotti Park can’t seem to scrape up the $139,000 in back taxes they owe the city.

The city Finance Department told The New York Daily News that Brookfield Properties still owes taxes from 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

“That’s obviously ironic,” City Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn) noted. “Occupy Wall Street has been talking about economic disparity … and here’s Brookfield Properties, which has worked with the mayor to keep the messengers out, not paying their share.”
