But, hopefully the info I provided will help get you pointed in the right direction.
I may be wrong.
It's clear that money in the US is subject to infinite taxation. The same money is just taxed and taxed and taxed again. It never stops. Couldn't we just pull a few dollars out of the cycle so that those dollars wouldn't end up taxed to death with all that muli-taxing that's going on?
I mean, it's the same money and it just gets taxed and taxed. It's worse than being doubly taxed. Inifinitely so.
I have to wonder why should I have to be taxed.
I mean so much money is taxed already. What difference does my two cents make?
And besides, as I pointed out above, the income I earn has already been taxed some large indefinite number of times before it even reaches my hands.
Money should only be taxed once. And everyone who receives it after that initial taxation should not have to pay taxes on it--it's the same money after all.
Maybe transactions are being taxed rather than the money itself.
I may be wrong.
If we understand that the 9m of revenue total for NFL owners is taxed in many ways, including all the ways any person or business is taxed. And we understand that the NFL, itself, does not own any of the teams. Then we must wonder how wanting to tax the 178m of dues to the NFL for the administration of an organization turns into...
"Why Isn't the NFL Taxed"?
Why aren't union dues taxed. Why aren't Sierra Club dues taxed. Rotary Club. NRA. etc etc etc
Because we don't tax association dues. There is no buying or selling in that 178m, just the administration of an association. Taxing 9b once and then 178m of it twice doesn't make a bit of difference anyway. So, we want to mess with taxation of association to generate ~0 additional income from football?

This "tax the NFL" thing is an old red herring, served on a plate of profit.

According to their ability to generate revenue there is.
I dont make up the tax status, I just point out that there will be unintended consequences unless you change the tax status of the NFL so as to leave smaller organizations unharmed.
