Donald Trump keeps getting a break from City Hall.

The self-proclaimed billionaire once again received a tax break from the city that is meant to be for New Yorkers making under $500,000.

Trump got a tidy $304 STAR tax break on his Trump Tower penthouse, according to the Republican presidential candidate’s June property tax bill.

That tax break was first reported by Crain’s New York Business.

He also got the break last year — when the city required homeowners to provide proof of income — and between 1999 and 2009.

That 10-year period was before people had to prove they made less than half a million.

When his past acceptance of the breaks was revealed in March, the city said it had mistakenly given him the money.

And his campaign manager said it was an “oversight” on his part and said he shouldn’t have got it because he makes over the income eligibility.

However, it sparked conspiracy theories that Trump — who has refused to divulge his tax returns — wasn’t as rich as he claimed to be.

Trump has repeatedly claimed he is a billionaire.

“The Department of Finance has a process in place for reviewing eligibility that it must follow,” said a City Hall spokeswoman, adding it is looking at the exemption status.

A spokesman for the Trump campaign said he got the tax break because of an error on the city's part.
