Another Failure of a Rauner Company to Pay Illinois Taxes Discovered

Rauner’s former company, GTCR, failed to pay nearly $13,000 in taxes in 2005

Chicago, IL–(ENEWSPF)–June 26, 2014.  Multimillionaire GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner’s company, GTCR, failed to pay nearly $13,000 in unemployment taxes in 2005, which resulted in the State of Illinois placing a lien on the business.  Rauner was a principal at GTCR from 1981 to 2012.

The news comes a day after a Chicago Sun Times report on a “clear failure” by Rauner’s current company, R8, to pay the state’s business license fee.

Ironically, Rauner released a campaign document yesterday decrying special interests that do not pay their fair share in taxes.

“It’s the height of irony for Rauner to complain about taxes when his companies have failed to pay them,” said Neal Waltmire, Communications Director for Illinois Freedom PAC. “It’s further proof that Illinois’ middle class can’t trust Bruce Rauner.”
