YEAH, I’M THE TAX­MAN

Soccer 360 - - La Liga -

La Liga pres­i­dent Javier Te­bas has crit­i­cized the pro­posed tax hikes in Spain and be­lieves it could dam­age the league’s global stand­ing. The gov­ern­ment is propos­ing a tax hike which would in­clude a 4% tax in­crease for in­comes over €300,000. This would im­pact a num­ber of Spain’s high­est earn­ers. If passed, Lionel Messi would now need to pay 52% on tax earnings as op­posed to 48%. Te­bas fears that the tax in­creases will lead to as many as 20 elite play­ers to de­part from La Liga, and as a re­sult they are work­ing on a strat­egy to mit­i­gate the im­pact as much as pos­si­ble.
