New York district attorney Cy Vance has former President Donald Trump's tax records in hand after prosecutors obtained the records on Monday.

According to a spokesperson for Vance, prosecutors obtained the records just hours after the U.S. Supreme Court denied Trump's last attempt to keep them private.

The records contain Trump's tax returns from January 2011 to August 2019, as well as financial statements, engagement agreements, documents relating to the preparation and review of tax returns, and tax return related work papers and communications.

Vance and his fellow prosecutors will begin to dig deeper into investigative theories and determine if any state laws have been violated. The records will most likely contain documents that reflect the decision-making behind valuations and tax write-offs, which may help in determining whether there was intent to commit a crime.
