Trump Foundation admits to violating ban on ‘self-dealing,’ new filing to IRS shows

President-elect Donald Trump’s charitable foundation has admitted to the IRS that it violated a legal prohibition against “self-dealing,” which bars nonprofit leaders from using their charity’s money to help themselves, their businesses or their families. The foundation checked “yes” on the IRS tax filing form for 2015 when asked if it had transferred “income or assets to a disqualified person.”
