Reportedly, California Democrat Adam Schiff has resided in Maryland for the past two decades, according to documents that surfaced on Wednesday.
CNN reported that Schiff designated his 3,420-square-foot Maryland property in mortgage documents as his primary residence. Reportedly, in order to reduce his $7,000 tax liability, the congressman also designated his 650-square-foot condo in Burbank, California, as his primary residence.
The outlet reported that Schiff did not claim an exemption on his Maryland residence.
Nevertheless, according to documents he allegedly signed, he designated both his Maryland and California properties as his primary residences.
Marisol Samayoa, a spokesperson for Schiff, asserts that the lawmaker resides primarily in California.
The outlet reports that Schiff paid his California property taxes in 2017 with a check bearing his Maryland address.
It has been reported that the congressman paid his obligations with a personal check exclusively in 2017.
