The Internal Revenue Service has reportedly issued subpoenas requesting documents from lenders and investors who are involved in real estate projects managed by Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner’s family.
Bloomberg reports that the subpoenas were issued last year and do not appear related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The documents requested by the IRS relate to Kushner family real estate projects in New York and New Jersey that date back to 2010, according to Bloomberg’s source. At the moment it’s not clear whether the IRS is scrutinizing the Kushner family itself or simply its investors.
In a statement given to Bloomberg, Kushner Companies attorney Charles J. Harder denied that the Kushner family was under any kind of tax investigation.
“Kushner Cos… has had no contact with anyone at the IRS or Justice Department Tax Division,” he said. “It has received no subpoenas or audit requests about its taxes. It is not in tax court on any audits. If there is an investigation about others’ taxes, it has nothing to do with Kushner Cos. or its businesses.”
