    NY Court Finds Trump Organization Guilty of Tax Fraud, Could Impose Relatively Small Fine

    Published on

    A New York jury on Tuesday found The Trump Organization guilty of tax fraud.

    The Donald Trump-owned business may therefore be required to pay a fine of up to $1.6 million.

    The Associated Press claims that given the scale of the corporation, the fine is modest.

    On 17 counts of various offenses, including conspiracy and falsifying financial documents, the Trump Organization was found guilty of all of them.

    According to reports, the corporation assisted several CEOs in evading taxes on residences, vehicles, and other luxuries.

    According to the AP, New York prosecutors have been pursuing the accusations for three years.

    They assert that Trump was fully aware of the business’s illegal activities; however, both Trump and his representatives have refuted this assertion.

    The former president criticized the New York City district attorney’s office for pursuing the lawsuit on his social media network Truth Social.

    “Murder and Violent Crime is at an all time high in NYC, and the D.A.’s office has spent almost all of its time & money fighting a political Witch Hunt for D.C. against ‘Trump’ over Fringe Benefits, something that in the history of our Country, has never been so tried in Court before,” Trump stated.

    “Two weeks at trial, yet no MURDER CASE has gone to trial in 6 years, much to the consternation of victims mothers and families who are devastated that NOTHING is being done to bring JUSTICE. Too busy on ‘Donald.’”

    Even though the suit has been against the Trump Organization and not Trump personally, one of the prosecutors, Joshua Steinglass, took advantage of his chance to insult the former president in-person during his closing statements.

    “Mr. Trump is explicitly sanctioning tax fraud,” the man claimed.

    According to the AP, the district attorney’s office is currently conducting a thorough investigation into Trump.

    Cyrus Vance Jr., the district attorney, declared that the probe is still “active and ongoing.”
