    12.16.13 Professor Bradley Borden Interviewed on ESPN Regarding PGA Tour’s Nonprofit Status
    Bradley Borden

    Professor Bradley Borden appears in a new ESPN investigative report on the PGA Tour’s nonprofit status, which has allowed the organization to avoid paying up to $200 million in federal taxes over the past 20 years. The “Outside the Lines” broadcast – airing daily at 4:30 p.m. this week – details practices that many say fall short of acceptable charitable procedure, even though PGA Tour tournaments are specifically designed to benefit charities. Professor Borden provides legal context (at 1:20 mark): “It seems very unfair ... at a time when [the government is] cutting services, they are also providing a subsidy to professional athletes who are playing a game. And this is very troubling.”
