Normally, the costs involved in buying player contracts, or the revenues from the sale of contracts, is counted1 as a straight business expense or in- come for each year. When the Expos were organ- ized last year, the new club in- vested heavily in contracts but could not spread the expense over income this year or in sub- sequent years. Revenue Minister Jean-Pierre Cote isued a statement saying the cost "ascertainable as being properly applicable to players' contracts, as distinct from the franchise and related would be allowed to be written off against current income "over the estimated useful play- ing He of the players." Mr. Cote noted in his state- ment that the revenue depart- ment's ruling will ipply as gen- eral policy in dealing with pro- fesional sports clubs. Secrecy provisions of the Income Tax Act prevent the- government from discussing the specific cir- cumstances of any individual taxpayer, whether a person, a corporation, in this case baseball club. ACQUIRED WHOLE TEAM The department has always regarded the outlay for players contracts, and the income from their sale, as a normal business expense and income for a pro- fesional club because "pail: of the operations of a club is to ac- quire, develop and trade players to the end of producing the best team possible, and so to earn more The Expos, however, acquired a whole team by contract pur- chase last year, and normally wnuld not be able to charge any of that expense against this year's income. The statement said that since there is no specific provision covering this in the Income Tax Act, the government has to de- termine what is good accounting and business practice in such circumstances. Mr. Cote's statement said: "Recognizing that the individ- ual players making up the ac- quisition have a limited playing life, it is our view that the cost ascertainable as being properly applicable to players' contracts, as distinct from the franchiss and related rights, should be al- lowed to be written off over the estimated useful playing hie of the players.
