Here’s a little financial tip. If you want to save money on your tax bill, buy a professional sports team. You get credit for asset depreciation even though the asset doesn’t depreciate. “Teams’ most valuable assets, such as TV deals and player contracts, are virtually guaranteed to regenerate because sports franchises are essentially monopolies. There’s little risk that players will stop playing for Steve Ballmer’s Clippers or that TV stations will stop airing their games. But Ballmer still gets to deduct the value of those assets over time, almost $2 billion in all, from his taxable income.” ProPublica: The Billionaire Playbook: How Sports Owners Use Their Teams to Avoid Millions in Taxes.
