More evidence on how shady Trump is

Donald Trump’s first wife Ivana was buried in a gold-hued coffin at the former president’s New Jersey golf club last month, following an Upper East Side funeral service where she was remembered as a woman who was “adored.”

...

Under New Jersey law, land being used for cemetery purposes is exempt from real estate and personal property taxes, as well as sales tax, inheritance tax, business tax, and income tax.

Cemetery property is also exempt from sale for collection of judgments, with cemetery trust funds and trust income exempt from both tax and sale or seizure for collection of judgments against the company.


But the Orange Fan Club will no doubt laud him for being a shrewd businessman and delighted at any maneuver that deprives the government of taxes.

It was Ivana's wish, which Trump agreed to. You sure are mercenary. Why can't you just believe that she loved the property and wanted to be buried there?

BTW; is a one-millionth part of the entire property worth money-grubbing about?

Do we think that Trump is going to pay only one-millionth less in tax?

Well if he follows on how large he says his apartment was, it will most likely include the back 9 of one of the courses.

Why do you say that?  What is your source?

I tried looking for one, and all I found was this Intelligencer article, which had some strong points about why it probably wasn't her wish:

Quote
If Trump National Golf Club Bedminster held a special place in Ivana’s heart, there’s no record of it. Donald bought the property in 2002, a full decade after their divorce was finalized. While Ivana maintained a friendship with her ex-husband through her final days, and her daughter, Ivanka, was married at the club, it does not appear that Ivana ever publicly praised the property.

Why spend eternity at a golf course bought a decade after you divorced the bum?  It doesn't make sense.

I need more evidence than some Trump's word that Ivanka wanted a golf course to be her final resting place. :)

There were plenty more sources than what you deigned to look at. Primarily, The place was Trump's favorite spot, reserved since 2014 for his family. It was nice that he included the mother of his three eldest children, wasn't it? Listening to his kids after the services, it is unarguable they thought she knew about it and would be happy to be included. Only a dufus would fuss about tax write-offs.
