Trump aided family members in tax fraud

Trump aided family members in tax fraud”

Schwartz, who has expressed regret for helping to write The Art of the Deal - memorably telling the New Yorker in 2016 that he felt like he had "put lipstick on a pig" by helping Trump sell an idealized image of himself - said that he had long believed that issues around tax fraud and money laundering could end up being a significant legal threat for Trump.

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance said Tuesday that it is reviewing allegations made in a New York Times report that President Trump's father transferred money to him and his siblings through complex tax arrangements.

The Times' report claims that Trump and his siblings hid millions of dollars in gifts in what the Times describes as a "sham corporation".

The New York Times reported Tuesday that President Donald Trump was earning $US200,000 annually by the time he was 3 years old.

ABC boss Michelle Guthrie ousted from role as managing director
Faine, who has been with the ABC since 1989, also said he had confronted Ms Guthrie about why she was not the staff's "champion". Guthrie, a lawyer who ran Star TV in Hong Kong and then worked at Google , came to the ABC in May 2016 to replace Mark Scott.

Mr. Harder told the newspaper, "President Trump had virtually no involvement whatsoever with these matters".

"The affairs were handled by other Trump family members who were not experts themselves and therefore relied entirely upon the aforementioned licensed professionals to ensure full compliance with the law".

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service did not reply immediately to a request for comment.

Citing an "unprecedented" reporting effort which documented hundreds of revenue streams, the Times offered a straightforward conclusion, one at odds with almost everything Trump has said publicly about the financial assistance he received from his family: "In every era of Mr. Trump's life, his finances were deeply intertwined with, and dependent on, his father's wealth".

The New York state tax department told The Associated Press that it is reviewing the allegations in the Times and "is vigorously pursuing all appropriate avenues of investigation". The four children, including Donald Trump, each owned 20 percent of the company, which would pay contractors and suppliers for building maintenance as an intermediary, according to the Times.

The Times, citing tax experts, reported it was unlikely Trump would face criminal prosecution because the acts were past the statute of limitations. They revealed Trump received at least $US413 million in today's dollars from when he was a small child through the present day. But the newspaper said its exhaustive investigation of tax returns and confidential records found this was not true. There is no time limit, however, on civil fines for tax fraud, according to the paper. Indeed, the Times reported, "these maneuvers met with very little resistance from the IRS along the way".

By 1990, Fred Trump had transferred today's equivalent of at least $US46.2 million to Donald Trump.

Mrs. Sanders said the Times' and other media outlets' credibility with the American people " is at an all time low because they are consumed with attacking the president and his family 24/7 instead of reporting the news".
