Crain’s has a story up today saying that Donald Trump received a $302 benefit on the property-tax bill for his Trump Tower penthouse, which is interesting because you can only get this deduction if you have an income under $500,000. Now, I’m skeptical of Trump’s wealth, but I don’t believe that he has an income under $500,000. That makes this the most humorous part of the story:
Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said the tax benefit was “an error on the part of the city of New York” and that Trump received the benefit over the past three years even though he hadn’t asked for it since 2009, when tax authorities began checking on applicants’ income.
So Trump applied for this piddling $302 tax credit for years even though he didn’t qualify for it, and stopped only when they began checking income. What a dick.
