WASHINGTON — Trump will be paying taxes after all on a historic property he complains he paid “too much” for.
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray (D) and members of the D.C. Council decided Monday that the Trump Organization — led by business mogul, television personality and multi-billionaire Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump — is required to pay property taxes at the historic Old Post Office Pavilion, a site the Trump Organization plans on redeveloping into a luxury hotel.
The mayor’s decision followed an inquiry from the Trump duo asking if the district would waive the taxes to assist the redevelopment project. Gray and members of the D.C. Council declined to grant the Trumps’ request because “it was never part of the bid proposal that the project would not be subject to the tax,” Gray spokesman Pedro Ribeiro told the Washington Post.
