Oct. 24, 2011 - PRLog -- Austin, TX-  The latest edition of Sports Litigation Alert features an exclusive report on tax issues that could arise if NBA players, currently at a labor impasse with management, seek employment overseas.

“With the first two weeks of the NBA season cancelled and the length of the labor dispute between the owners and players uncertain, professional athletes from the United States are increasingly expressing interest in playing on teams abroad, even for short periods while the lockout continues,” wrote Michael D. Foster, a Los Angeles partner of Venable LLP, in an article for the Alert (www.sportslitigationalert.com).

“Playing abroad may require creative tax planning in order to avoid incurring significant additional taxes.”
