Fake News: Fox News Insinuates Sen. Duckworth Isn’t Paying Her Taxes

This is low even by Fox News click-bait standards.

The right-wing news outlet posted a story today with a misleading headline that reads, “Democrat Tammy Duckworth hasn’t paid property tax on her Illinois home since 2015, report says.”

What? OMG – she’s dodging paying her taxes???

No, the 53-year-old U.S. senator pays zero in property taxes because she is a disabled U.S. military veteran with a 70% or higher disability rating, as determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

She and other similarly disabled veterans in Cook County who own homes get the tax break regardless of their income level.

Duckworth lost both of her legs and some use of her right arm after the helicopter she was piloting was hit by a rocket-fired grenade in Iraq in 2004.

Doesn’t Fox News have other things to do than insinuate a disabled veteran isn’t paying her taxes?
