Buzzkill: Fan may owe taxes on rewards for Jeter’s 3,000th – Big League Stew – MLB Blog – Yahoo! Sports.

How is this income? This is not something that he can take down to the grocery store to put food on his family’s table, and he sure as heck cannot put it in his gas tank. How is that income???

Come on IRS (Insane and Ridiculously Silly)! Tax a man on his contracted work, not something that was given to him without his knowledge before hand. This is a gift, not something that he asked for or expected. Period.

No wonder this government has crashed as badly as it has… How dumb!
