    Speaking of Kansas, I ran across this tidbit in an article discussing Trump-vs-NFL:

    Almost none of NFL’s teams are public corporations but so-called pass-through businesses. Under the tax framework negotiated by the White House and Republican leadership, owners and investors of pass-through businesses would see their tax rates fall from a maximum of 39.6 percent to just 25 percent.

    The Tax Policy Center estimates the measure would result in $770 billion in lost tax revenue over a decade.

    “This pass-through loophole is several orders of magnitude bigger than other issues,” said Seth Hanlon, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, a left-leaning think tank. “It’s just an enormous windfall.”

    A similar but much more dramatic shift has taken place in Kansas, where the state had cut the rate on pass-through businesses all the way to zero. That prompted Bill Self, the men’s basketball head coach at the University of Kansas, to incorporate as a pass-through business to shelter $2.75 million in income from taxation, according to local news reports. Self was pilloried for the move, and the Kansas state legislature voted to begin raising tax rates this summer.

    A coach incorporated himself as a pass-through business…and sheltered almost $3 million from taxes.
