Alec Baldwin - Teacher Basher AND A Tax Cheat

The NY Daily News details some celebrities New York City thinks are cheating on their taxes - and guess which sanctimonious, teaching bashing know-nothing of an actor showed up in the article?

Actor Alec Baldwin has joined a list of elite New Yorkers targeted by tax collectors who think they're fibbing about where they really live to dodge New York City income taxes.

In recent years, auditors have confronted hundreds of super-wealthy New Yorkers over the residency rules - including star Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter.

Facing shrinking revenues, the state has ramped up its pursuit of suspected tax dodgers, hiring 189 new auditors and - for the first time - making filers swear under oath on tax forms as to how many days they "spend in New York City."

If it's more than 183 days and the filer has a residence in the city, the tax bill goes up.

Baldwin, star of NBC's "30 Rock," owns a three-bedroom co-op on Central Park West, a house in the Hamptons and a pad near his daughter in Los Angeles.

He spends lots of time in the city doing the show, but claims the Hamptons as home base. That made him one of hundreds of people slapped with an audit in 2009.

"The moment you start working regularly [in the city], the city finance people come after you," Baldwin recently told an audience at City College.

Neither Baldwin nor tax officials would discuss his case with the Daily News.
Hey, Alec - why don't you spend less time talking shit to students at City College or writing shit at Huffingtonpost about how evil unionized teachers are and more time taking care of your responsibilities.

Like paying the taxes you rightfully owe.

Alec Baldwin - just another example of a sanctimonious, hypocritical know-it-all celebrity who at the end of the day is a cheat and a deadbeat.


  1. Baldwin is just another windbag drunk, or ex-drunk from Southampton/Bridghampton...just like Cathie Black...they're all in the same club...The Trendoids Club...I wonder how or why ANYONE would value his interest or opinion on young people, when it's documented that he is a known child abuser (verbal)...of his daughter...He has that identical Cathie Black, stupid shit-eating "I had one too many" gaze on his face...doesn't he...?

  2. Celebrities were also conspicuously silent during the recent Bush Tax Cuts Expiration debate. I guess you can't really get behind a cause that will help people if it asks yourself of making fair sacrifices for the good of the nation.

    Oh, well, they can always cruise around in their SUV's and private jets to protest global warming.

  3. Don't forget Julian Robertson who is mentioned at the end of the Daily news article. He apparently was able to dodge more than 20 million dollars in city taxes.

    He is the same Julian Robertson, father of Spencer Robertson and father-in-law of Sarah Robertson, who donates umpteen millions to the New York City Charter Center.

    Here's are some policy ideas for our state and city government:

    - stop kissing rich people's behind
    - stop showing so much deference to rich, your parents would be embarrassed of your behavior
    - tell rich people to keep their charitable donations in the pockets
    - make them pay their fare share of taxes

  4. Mr Baldwin who screwed things up with Kim Bassinger. That alone is reason enough for him to be admitted for psychiatric evaluation. If anyone listens to one word he says about education or politics they too should be admitted.

  5. I know people who know about him in Bridgehampton...he WAS an abusive drunken asshole, not that long ago. Don't know what state he's in now. Professionally he was known to have "anger management" issues. translate that into "drunken asshole" issues. Somehow he managed to save his career, which, doesn't say much about his character. Look at Charlie Sheen.

    How this asshole has the credibility to entertain a political career, and/or postulate on the public school system at this point is laughable...A trendoid windbag he is...
