Hank Paulson got a pretty sweet leaving package when he stepped down from running Goldman Sachs to take the job as George Bush's Treasury Secretary. And now his move down to Washington, DC is looking even sweeter. Eight million dollars sweeter.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, the former chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., sold his 50th floor condominium near Manhattan's Lincoln Center for almost $8 million, according to public records.
Paulson paid a total of $2.88 million for two apartments he bought and combined on West 67th Street, one in 1996 and the other in 1998. Tax on the re-sale was about $112,000, according to the New York City Register.
