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.

Trump's son Eric sat for a deposition in the case this Monday.
