Post NFL has relinquishes its tax-exempt status
Quote:
Commissioner Roger Goodell labeled the designation a "distraction." The NFL has repeatedly come under fire for its tax-exempt status as it racks up billions in revenues. As Profootballtalk points, the league's 32 teams are all taxable, for-profit businesses, however, so it's not as if the NFL has been dodging taxes. The move means Goodell's salary will no longer be public record.

Why did they have the tax status to begin with ?

Not 100% sure on the details but I think all the major sports leagues received this status many decades ago to help them last and eventually grow. MLB wisely dumped their tax exemption a while ago but the NFL has come under fire in the past few years for still retaining the status. Not sure if the NBA and NHL still have it.
