NEW YORK – New York authorities have expanded their investigation of the Trump organization.
People familiar with the matter say the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the New York Attorney General’s Office are now looking at millions of tax write-offs from the Trump organization.
Both offices have subpoenaed the company seeking records related to consulting fees.
This is in response to the New York Times investigation into President Trump’s tax returns.
The Times reported trump took $26-million in write-offs that came from fees paid to consultants, including one that matched a payment to his daughter, Ivanka Trump.
Representatives for the Manhattan District Attorney, New York Attorney General, and the Trump organization have declined to comment on the matter.
These investigations are facing Trump when he leaves office and becomes a private citizen.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is conducting a broad criminal investigation into the Trump organization.
The New York Attorney General’s Office has a civil inquiry into whether Trump violated tax laws and improperly inflated the value of certain assets, including four Trump properties.
