According to a new report from The Washington Post, a promise President Donald Trump made five years ago to preserve the forest around his luxurious mansion in Westchester County, N.Y., got him a $21.1 million tax break. Now, an investigation is underway to determine if he inflated the value of the land.

"The size of Trump's tax windfall was set by a 2016 appraisal that valued Seven Springs at $56.5 million — more than double the value assessed by the three Westchester County towns that each contained a piece of the property," The Post reports. "The valuation has now become a focal point of what could be one of the most consequential investigations facing President Trump as he heads into the election."
