President Trump is once again suing the Palm Beach County property appraiser, claiming that the appraised value of Trump National Golf Club is an overestimate.

The lawsuit, filed in December, marks the fifth consecutive year that Trump fights the county’s appraised value, according to the Palm Beach Post. Property appraiser Dorothy Jacks set the value of the Jupiter golf club at $19.7 million, a figure that Trump says is inflated by about $5 million. That’s despite listing the property’s value at “over $50 million” in his financial disclosures for 2016 and 2017, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Last year, the golf club was appraised at $18.4 million, resulting in a $383,171 tax bill. Trump responded to this year’s appraised value with a $296,595 check, less than the $398,315 tab he owes.

Since Trump won the election in 2016, the Trump Organization has doubled the membership fee at Mar-a-Lago to $200,000, a move that has ethics watchdogs on alert. [Palm Beach Post] – Amanda Rabines
