Gov. Sam Brownback’s office took to Twitter on Wednesday night to tout the tax savings Kansas City Royals star Alex Gordon would enjoy by re-signing with team for a four-year contract.
Gordon’s deal with the World Series-winning team will earn him $72 million over four years, an average of $18 million a year.
“Congrats, Alex Gordon! With your new contract, you'll save about $1.8M/year in taxes just by living in KS instead of CA,” Brownback’s Twitter account, which is run by his staff, posted Wednesday evening in celebration.
