Rayn: Michael Phelps Must Pay $55,000 in “Victory Taxes” on Olympic Medals:
Tammy S.: They work their butts off to win and represent our country and they are penalized. That’s a shame. I understand we need taxation. Some things should be exempt just on principle, like Olympic Medals.
Marilyn M.: totally, totally agree with tammy. shame, shame on whomever is responsible for this “victory” (whose victory ?) tax
