    how does a guy that makes that much money not pay his taxes
    Unlike us, I do not think that taxes are taken out of their checks. They have to just pay in at the end of the year.

    Also, athletes have to pay taxes to each city they play in for whatever amount of money they make per game. So, if the Vikes come to Cleveland every player owes the city of Cleveland tax money because technically they "worked" in Cleveland. Kinda sucks.

    Rats. He is cleared
    Story---

    May 28, 2005 -- In what his tax attorney described as a "bureaucratic snafu," Giants receiver Plaxico Burress was issued an arrest warrant because of unpaid taxes and suffered a day's worth of bad publicity until yesterday, when the matter was rectified and Burress was cleared.

    According to a report in Thursday's Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, a criminal complaint filed by a collections agency stated that Burress did not file returns or pay the combined one percent wage tax to the Moon Area School District.

    Burress, a Florida resident, lived in Moon, Pa., a suburb of Pittsburgh, several years ago before moving within the city limits. The report added that Burress could be arrested and fined $2,500 if he returned to Pennsylvania.

    Chuck Potter, a partner in the Pittsburgh law firm of Pepper Hamilton, was retained by Burress and after investigating the matter, built a consensus that Burress was not at fault since income tax is based on domicile and Burress is a resident of Florida. As a non-resident, he was required to pay local taxes to the city of Pittsburgh because he worked there.

    "He paid where he worked, it was taken right out of his paycheck by the Steelers and paid over to the city of Pittsburgh," Potter said yesterday. "He's paid every penny he owed. The municipality he lived in three or four years ago thought he should be paying tax there. He shouldn't have been paying tax there. It was a mistake that they came after him for these taxes."

    Burress spent most of the offseason working out in Miami but was at Giants Stadium this past week and is expected to participate in the mandatory three-day mini-camp starting on Wednesday. No stranger to controversy, Burress is attempting to rejuvenate his career with a fresh start with the Giants. After signing a six-year, $25 million contract he's now had to endure the embarrassment of having a warrant issued for his arrest.

    "It's particularly difficult," Potter said, "because I'm sure he's trying to build up a good image there in New York."



    Here is the picture from his interview. Glad we didn't waste money on him. Wearing a Yankees hat :shock: , can't have any of that. :lol:
