WASHINGTON (AP) — In three consecutive years, Donald Trump has received a property tax credit for people with incomes of less $500,000. Now New York would like its money back.
The perk from the New York State School Tax Relief Program was only $302 off Trump’s tax bill. Late Tuesday, New York City’s Department of Finance said that it believes Trump has received the tax benefit in error. A spokeswoman for New York City said that Trump should immediately return the tax break’s value to state taxpayers.
Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said that Trump hadn’t noticed he was receiving the break, because while $300 might matter on other people’s taxes, it doesn’t on his. Despite challenges from his opponents, Trump has refused to release his tax returns.
