The Trump Organization reportedly paid late taxes on plots of land it owns in California after The Washington Post contacted the organization about the discrepancy.

The Trump Organization owed $36,200 in unpaid property taxes on land near its California golf course, according to the Washington Post.

The unpaid taxes plus late fees were paid Monday after the organization was notified by the Post for an article that was being written on the matter.


The two plots of land that had unpaid taxes were on the Trump Organization’s golf course in Rancho Palos Verdes. The land is set to be used for the organization to build and sell 23 new homes, the Post notes. The two parcels of land were reportedly declared delinquent by Los Angeles County in December.

On Monday the Post contacted the organization after a reporter noticed the properties had unpaid taxes by checking a county government website.

The taxes were paid later that day, in addition to $3,600 in late penalties.

“All taxes are paid in full,” Trump Organization spokeswoman Kim Benza told The Post in a statement Tuesday. “To suggest otherwise would be an outright lie.”

The Hill has reached out to the Trump Organization for comment.
