Crazy Taxes


Here’s a funny article from CNN Money on the crazy taxes levied in various states, like the “jock tax,” which is a tax on the money made by athletes, entertainers, and their entourages. An economist quoted in the article explains: “If the Dallas Cowboys play the Bengals in Cinci, and they’re in town Friday through Saturday, then each player, as well as everyone else traveling with their team, will be taxed on three days salary—and the Cowboys are from a state with no income tax.”
