Agassi tax ruling costs famous golfer

Golfer Sergio Garcia skipping UK over tax rule, according to compatriot Luke Donald

One of the world’s most popular golfers, Sergio Garcia, is going to cut down
on his UK events due to new tax rules, according to compatriot Luke Donald.

A recent Lords ruling that found Andre Agassi must pay tax in the UK on some
of his earnings derived overseas, which has discouraged Garcia from playing in
the UK, Donald claimed.

‘He said he would like to [play in the UK] but feels like he’s going to get
hit hard with the tax, so financially it’s not worth it,’ said Donald in the
Metro.
