Trump is suing Palm Beach County’s property appraiser for the fifth straight year
Tuesday Jan 30th, 2018
President Trump is once again suing the Palm Beach County property appraiser, claiming that the appraised value of Trump National Golf Club is an overestimate.
The lawsuit, filed in December, marks the fifth consecutive year that Trump fights the county’s appraised value, according to the Palm Beach Post. Property appraiser Dorothy Jacks set the value of the Jupiter golf club at $19.7 million, a figure that Trump says is inflated by about $5 million. That’s despite listing the property’s value at “over $50 million” in his financial disclosures for 2016 and 2017, the Palm Beach Post reported.
Last year, the golf club was appraised at $18.4 million, resulting in a $383,171 tax bill. Trump responded to this year’s appraised value with a $296,595 check, less than the $398,315 tab he owes.
