MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - The Super Bowl is an expensive event. Television commercials for this year's game ran $4 million for a 30-second ad.
Parking in downtown Minneapolis near US Bank Stadium cost $240 on Sunday.
A beer at the game set fans back $15, but those prices pale in comparison to what the players were taxed for working in Minnesota for one week.
Carson Wentz, and every Philadelphia Eagles player received a $112,000 bonus for winning the game.
Because of Minnesota's "Jock Tax," the state will take $7,200 of that payday, and that doesn't include an additional $23,500 in federal tax on the winner's share of the bonus money.
But wait, there's more.
Minnesota's top marginal tax rate of 9.85 percent on Wentz's annual salary, pro-rated for one week of work in Minneapolis, totals $12,632.
So, Carson will be paying $20,000 in state and federal taxes on his Super Bowl Week earnings.
Those numbers don't include federal income tax on Wentz's $6,669,000 annual salary.
In case you're wondering, Tom Brady's tax burden for his Super Bowl wages are estimated at $43,000, excluding federal income tax on his annual salary of $22 million.
Only California has a higher state "Jock Tax" than Minnesota.
