The ex-wife of former President of the United States, Donald Trump, Ivana Trump recently passed and was buried in a Trump-owned golf course in New Jersey, this raised many questions about the unusual burial site since the typical burial place for a loved one is a cemetery.
Her death was ruled as accidentally
Ivana, due to an accidental death on July 14 in New York’s Upper East Side, she was 73 years old.
This unusual burial site had journalist Brooke Harrington tweeting “As a tax researcher, I was skeptical of rumors Trump buried his ex-wife in that sad little plot of dirt on his Bedminster, NJ golf course just for tax breaks. So I checked the NJ tax code & folks…it’s a trifecta of tax avoidance. Property, income & sales tax, are all eliminated”
The location of Ivana, Ivanka Trump’s mother, is near the first hole of the course which is in the Trump National Golf Club, which is the first person to be buried in any Trump-owned golf course.
Is the golf course also involved in the cemetery business?
According to the law “a person, corporation, association or other entity that owns or operates a cemetery, but does not include a religious organization that owns a cemetery which restricts burials to members of that religion or their families unless the organization has obtained a certificate of authority for the cemetery.”
And it seems that Trump has been looking into getting the golf area to change courses.
NPR has another piece of the puzzle
According to NPR “in 2012 that his intention was to build a mausoleum to one day be buried in himself. He later amended his proposal to create a cemetery on the property to suggest building more than 1,000 possible graves.”
Some report that Trump also wanted to build a Trump Memorial site for the family
