Strip The NFL Of Its Tax Exemption!

Strip The NFL Of Its Tax Exemption!

Dear Friend,

If you've had enough of the NFL coddling and protecting players who abuse women and their own children, please join our effort to support the bill introduced by New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) to strip the NFL of its tax exemption.

While individual teams pay business income taxes, the NFL does not.  The head of the National Football League, Roger Gooddell, made a whopping $44 million for the 2012 season and $105 million over the course of five years.

The premise of the tax exemption is that the NFL is not a business, but a fraternal association.  That is totally absurd!

Passing the Booker Bill would generate $100 million in revenue which would be earmarked for the victims of domestic abuse.

Send a message to the NFL!  Please sign this petition and demand that Congress revoke the National Football League's tax-exempt status.

Your signature will count!  We will send an email in your name to your Senators and Congressman telling him or her of your position!

Please get your friends and family to sign this petition too.

We'll add your email address to our Alerts list to keep you posted on progress and let you know if we need to take further action.

Thanks,

Dick Morris

Everyone else has to pay taxes. What gives them the privilege of avoiding them?

Make this retroactive. Who was stupid enough to grant them tax exempt status in the first place. How many other sport leagues have this?

Enough is enough or, as in this case, it's way too much. Shame on congress for NFL's tax exempt status.
