De Blasio says city will check if Trump paid ‘fair share’ of local taxes

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday night said the city will look into whether President Trump has paid the correct amount of city taxes.

“The New York City Department of Finance will get to work right away to see if the president did cheat on his taxes,” the mayor said on NY1.

“We’re going to pursue this with all we got because he needs to pay for his fair share.”

The mayor’s announcement came after host Errol Louis asked him about Sunday’s story in the New York Times that reported that Trump paid just $750 in federal taxes in 2016 and 2017.

In 11 of 18 years through 2017, Trump paid no federal taxes, the report said.

Trump has blasted the report, which examined years of his tax information, as “totally fake news.”

In a series of Monday morning tweets, the president said he “paid many millions of dollars in taxes but was entitled, like everyone else, to depreciation & tax credits.”
