KUSHNER COS-UNPAID FINES

NEW YORK — The Kushner family real estate firm has amassed over half a million dollars in unpaid fines for various New York City sanitation and building violations, with much of that bill incurred while President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner was running the company. City figures compiled for The Associated Press by a tenant watchdog group show that most of the fines — $350,000 — stretched over the past five years. And just last month the company was fined $210,000 for filing false construction documents. By Business Writer Bernard Condon. SENT: 870 words, photos.
