Trump got a $21 million tax break for saving the forest outside his N.Y. mansion. Now the deal is under investigation.

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 valuation has now become a focal point of what could be one of the most consequential investigations facing President Trump as he heads into the election.

New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) is investigating whether the Trump Organization improperly inflated the value of Seven Springs as part of the conservation easement on the property, according to filings in the case in August. The investigation also scrutinizes valuations, tax burdens and conservation easements at Trump’s holdings in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City.

Trump’s son Eric, who now helps run the Trump Organization, sat for a deposition in the case Monday.

Alpine Motel owner lists mansion for sale for $2.9 million

The landlord of the downtown Las Vegas apartment building where a December fire killed six has listed his family’s mansion for sale.

Adolfo Orozco faces involuntary manslaughter charges in connection with the deadly Alpine Motel Apartments fire, which left more than a dozen injured. The blaze also triggered wrongful death lawsuits in which Orozco has been named as a defendant.

The 6,250-square-foot, Southern Highlands Country Club mansion was first listed Monday on Simply Vegas. The six-bedroom, six-bath home, which property records show is in the name of Orozco’s wife, Erika Ayala, is going for $2,995,000.

“Never before has this hidden gem been available,” the listing reads.

Orozco acquired the Alpine in 2013 for

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady appeared to make himself at home with his new team after tossing five touchdowns last weekend.

Finding a permanent home for his family, however, may not be going as smoothly.

The New York Post on Thursday knocked down reports that the 43-year-old Brady is reportedly interested in a $7.5 million Tampa Bay-area mansion located in a private community.

According to TMZ, the six-time Super Bowl champ is in the later phases of negotiations of the custom-built five-bedroom home in a gated community in Clearwater, Florida. The site reported that he could close at some point this week.

The 8,548 square feet home has 5 full baths and 3 half baths and
