Fairhope, AL, November 05, 2021: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of, recently published a blog on his website entitled “A New Boon For College Athletes Could Lead To Big League Tax Issues,” in which Mr. Willis lets readers know how they can avoid tax troubles.

John P WillisWillis writes, “Late last month it was announced that The National Collegiate Athletic Association began allowing university athletes to earn money from their name, image and likeness (NIL).” He acknowledges, “That’s a coup for the college athletes, but,” he adds, “let me clue you in, it could be a double-edged sword when they find themselves owing taxes for the first time in their lives.” Willis continues, “It’s not surprising that most college athletes are not experienced at paying taxes. Unless they’ve had jobs they may never have received a 1099 form. If any of these athletes start getting lucrative endorsement deals, they’ll need professional tax help.”

“In fact,” as Willis points out, “if your college kid is an athlete who is likely to benefit from the new ruling, you may want to find a good tax attorney to work with before the upcoming tax season. If the endorsements they get are significant, you can count on there being tax complexities.”
