Jeff Winick, the founder of Winick Realty Group, has landed on New York state’s registry of top debtors, revealing he owes more than $1 million in unpaid taxes.

Winick was listed on the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance’s public list of the top 250 individual tax debtors, and placed 70th with an outstanding personal income balance of $1.2 million. The news was first reported by Commercial Observer.

According to the public list, Winick owes $195,945.55 in unpaid taxes from August and $331,343 from March last year. It also includes $638,214 not paid since 2015.

His firm Winick Realty, which he runs with his daughter Danielle, has long been among the biggest retail brokerages in the city. In December Winick represented WeWork in a deal at 500-512 Seventh Avenue.  And in a December ranking by The Real Deal, his firm placed among the top five firms in the city by amount of square feet signed. [CO] — David Jeans
