Taxes are based on where they play

I believe the article spoke about the jock tax. The salary is not taxed by his resident state, but where the salary is earned. Each state he plays in gets a proportional amount of the salary (e.g. if he plays 8 games in Minnesota, he has a tax liability for 8/162 of his total salary for Minnesota state tax). Presumably endorsements and other income belong to his state of residence. I'd guess a signing bonus would also, although his home team state might have a claim.
