Hello Mr. Theros,

Apologies for my delayed reply- I would like to amend my request as follows: Any documents regarding the award of tax abatements, exemptions, subsidies, or reductions on Trump International Hotel Waikiki at 223 Saratoga Rd, Honolulu, HI 96815 from the Trump Organization and Trump Organization subsidiaries.

Please let me know if this is sufficient!

Best,

Cameron Koob

From: Honolulu County Department of Budget and Fiscal Services Real Property Assessment Division

Mr. Koob -

Thank you for your reply specifying the Trump International Hotel Waikiki in your request for information. The Trump Tower operates as a condo-tel, which has individual owners who can decide whether to reside in their respective units or to place it into a hotel pool to be rented out on a short-term basis, allowing the hotel operation to manage the occupancy of the units. To our knowledge, Donald Trump, the Trump Organization, or any Trump Organizations subsidiaries have no ownership interest in the building or the hotel operation. The Trump name is either being leased, or was sold to the hotel operators for marketing purposes.

If you wish to pursue your original 92F request, would you please include a time frame of the information requested (ex: tax year 2017-2018)?
