The Times, citing federal income tax records obtained, reported that lenders had forgiven hundreds of millions of dollars in debt since 2010 because most of Trump’s unpaid dues were paid by Trump.

His lenders, Deutsche Bank and the hedge fund Fortress Investment Group, allowed Trump more time to repay his loan, including tax returns, interviews and other records, the newspaper said.

New York Attorney General Letia James (D) ‘s investigation into Trump’s business includes questions about the debt forgiven, the Times noted.

But the newspaper report said Trump’s tax records show that the current president has paid almost no federal income tax on debts forgiven due to large-scale losses to other industries.

Fischer Lan Garten, chief legal officer of the Trump Organization, told the Times that the company and Trump have paid all taxes properly because of the forgiven debt.

“It was all an arm-length transaction that voluntarily entered into between civilized parties many years ago after the global financial crisis of 2008 and the resulting collapse of the real estate markets.”

Hill has reached out to the Trump organization for comment.

Deutsche Bank agreed to provide a 6 640 million loan to Trump’s LLC for the Chicago project, including $ 40 million that Trump personally pledged. As part of a deal with a double-digit interest rate and from Fortress Investment Group, it borrowed 130 130 million, the Times reported.

The agreements were signed in 2005 and originally date back to May 2008, when Trump was expected to generate enough money from the property to repay the loan. But delays in construction and a lack of sales of condos and real estate space resulted in the company not having the money on time.

As the financial crisis began to develop, Trump sought a six-month delay in repaying the loan for the Dutch bank, and the bank refused to defer the future when that deadline came. At the time, Trump paid about 33 4,334 million in interest to Dutsh Bank and about 130 130 million in interest-free debt to Fortress, the Times reported.

Trump sued the lenders, saying the Dutch bank was engaged in a “predatory lending practice”. Deutsche Bank has filed a lawsuit against the future president, requesting repayment of the loan. Both parties settled privately in 2010.

Trump’s federal tax returns and loan documents in Cook County, Illinois, show he is no longer responsible for paying about લગભગ 270 million, the Times has found.

Fortress originally expected to pay more than million 300 million from Trump’s business but instead settled at $ 48 million, people familiar with the deal told the newspaper.

The Times reported that the forgiven debts appeared in federal tax returns, 40 181 million in debts canceled in 2010 in Trump’s 401 Maze Venture and જે 105 million in 2012 by DJT Holdings, the umbrella company for the Chicago project.

Steven Schlesinger, a lawyer representing the Trump organization in the Chicago legal battle, told the newspaper that the 2010 settlement gave Trump time to make more money to pay off the rest. The Trump organization repaid about 23 235 million in Deutsche Bank loans by 2012.

But the incumbent paid the last $ 99 million to the bank through another Dutch bank loan, which he personally guaranteed in 2012. Loans will be outstanding in 2023 and 2024.
