Tax free non-profit organizations
It is hard to understand any organization that makes 9 Billion a year as non-profit. That is the case of the National Football League. They pay Roger Goodell 29.6 million a year to manage that money. He then disperses it to the owners, and teams. Is doing this money laundering as the taxpayers are "cheated" out of hundreds of millions in taxes a year.
I only use the NFL as an example ... PGA, NHL, etc .. all have the same 501c3 agreements.
They are the true 1% that is never attacked or considered. They make 9 Billion a year not have a Billion dollars total over the years. That makes them many times richer than the wealthy but pay nothing. Taxes become necessary at the lower levels when the NFL makes payments out.
Should we reconsider the professional sports as charitable organizations or is this just a tax dodge.
This is also true of all college bowl games, and many other big money events.
This is easy to research ... look into it and express your thoughts.
