Ghislaine Maxwell, Lisa Marie Presley among New York’s worst tax deadbeats

Ghislaine Maxwell isn’t just an alleged sex trafficker — she’s also a major tax deadbeat.

The disgraced socialite, who is accused of serving as Jeffrey Epstein’s madam, is one of the worst income tax scofflaws in New York state — owing $1,520,558.84, according to a warrant filed by the Tax Department.

The alleged pedo procurer is awaiting criminal trial for allegedly recruiting underage girls for Epstein to abuse in the 1990s and early 2000s. She is number 47 on the state Tax Department’s list of top individual tax delinquents.

Maxwell is locked up in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.

She pleaded not guilty in April and has appealed five times to be released from jail pending trial — but has been rejected each time.

She is not alone in having a trail of tax arrears.

Lisa Marie Presley, the singer-songwriter and only child of the late famed crooner Elvis Presley, owes $636,950.33 in back income taxes — putting her at No. 177 on the list.

The younger Presley, now 53, was famously married to pop superstar Michael Jackson from 1994 to 1996.

The tax warrant won’t bring the “Memories” or “Peace in the Valley” her dad, Elvis, crooned about.

Disgraced “Taxi King” Eugene Freidman, meanwhile, retained the No. 1 spot on the tax cheat list for the second year in a row.

Freidman was sentenced in 2019 to five years’ probation after he admitted to engaging in tax fraud and agreed to cooperate in the federal probe of President Trump’s ex-attorney Michael Cohen. He owes the state $18.7 million, the Tax Department said.

Rounding out the top 5 tax cheats are Anthony J. Frascone, Jr., Anthony P. Frascone, Frederick Goldring and Gary B. Flom. The five men owe a combined $44 million.

Reps for Maxwell and Presley had no immediate comment.
