Congressional Candidate Calls For Olympian Tax Breaks


A local congressional candidate supports Congressman Aaron Schock’s call for a tax break for Olympians. Republican Rodney Davis agrees with Schock that Olympic medalists shouldn’t face a tax bill as the price for their competitive success.

 

Olympic winners get up to $25,000 for winning a gold medal… but the federal government claims more than a third of that in taxes. Schock and Davis say that most Olympic athletes must invest huge amounts of their own money to train and work their way toward the Olympics… and shouldn’t be penalized for their success.
