Law professor comments on Fiesta Bowl

February 23, 2011

Andy Grewal, a visiting College of Law associate professor, was quoted in a Feb. 18 Arizona Republic article titled, “Bowl plans expenditures review,” by reporter Craig Harris.

The article discussed the Fiesta Bowl’s disclosure to the Internal Revenue Service that it is reviewing expenditures related to political campaigns and excess benefits given to key officials. 

Andy Grewal, who specializes in federal tax law, said that the bowl’s potential political campaign involvement could endanger the organization’s non-profit status. The Fiesta Bowl is currently operated by four nonprofit organizations, giving it nonprofit status by the IRS, which allows the bowl to avoid paying taxes on most income.
