As part of the tax investigation in connection with US President Donald Trump, the New York State Attorney General's Office and the Manhattan District Attorney's Office have made inquiries for information about the payments that his daughter Ivanka Trump could have received, writes The New York Times.
The inquiries are related to the income she had submitted in her 2017 tax return. At the time, she had received more than $747,000 from a consulting firm he owned.
According to the newspaper, this corresponds to the amount that the Trump Organization has formulated as tax deduction as part of a project to build hotels in Hawaii and Vancouver, Canada.
Alan Garten, general counsel for the Trump Organization, said in a statement that “this is just the latest fishing expedition in an ongoing attempt to harass the company.”
