NFL pays no taxes?

Spread the love

So, you might wonder why an entire industry, that makes a lot of money is getting a break on its taxes, when we obviously need to reform this mess that is our tax situation.

Why is the NFL still considered a non-profit?

The NFL has had a bad few months.

It turns out that defending domestic abusers and refusing to change an unquestionably racist team name is not acceptable in the 21st century.

And now a movement is building to correct another ridiculous injustice perpetuated by the National Football League.

Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) just introduced a bill that would eliminate the NFL’s ridiculous tax-exempt status—in response to its refusal to address the name of the Washington Redskins.

The bill has the support of tribal leaders and thousands of Americans who are tired of paying more taxes so that the NFL can continue to be classified as a non-profit.

Will you join us in supporting this bill, and finally revoke the NFL’s tax-exemption?

PETITION TO U.S. SENATE: I urge you to support Sen. Maria Cantwell’s bill to revoke the NFL’s tax exempt status. An organization that defends racism and domestic abuse doesn’t deserve any special privileges.
