Don't you think the NFL should pay taxes?

They have "non-profit" status, but make huge profits.

    Yes and so should religious and political groups that qualify for tax exempt status.

    The NFL makes huge profits? Um, ok, how much profit does the NFL make? And I mean the NFL as an organization, not the individual teams/owners... because I'm sure the owners of each team will pay income tax if they make a profit.

  • Oh for God sakes, if you don't know anything about businesses then don't post stupid @ss questions like this! Goodell and all the owners, coaches, and players pay taxes. The League is an entity that does not make any money hence why it is non-profit so it does not pay taxes.

    I'm sure that the players, coaches and employees of the NFL pay dearly in taxes.. . I think the individual teams or the NFL should pay for their own stadiums though.. Instead of placing the burden on the taxpayers like they have in some areas.....

    No. 100% of business taxes just get passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices anyways.

    No, they employ many that do pay taxes not to mention all the money that chains down during home games to those cities.

    The NFL has a huge social responsibility to make the people of the United States happier. When 9/11 happened - the NFL rallied us by letting the Patriots win. When Hurricane Katrina happened the NFL gave New Orleans a boost by letting the Saints win the Superbowl. When Hurricane Sandy happened, The Jets got to host a superbowl because nobody would believe they could win one... Therefore given the requirement to pay so many people under the table to make this happen they need tax exempt status
