SAFPU has undertaken an initiative to challenge the status quo regarding the taxation imposed on sports people footballers in particular. The system is not fair on Sports people even though they contribute Millions on Tax while they play the game, the system forces them to leave (retire) with nothing. While other citizens in the country get their returns in a form of pension fund which is a tool that does not exist in football which is unfair and abusive on our part. We want Special Sport Tax to be introduced to give footballers a comfortable exit like everybody else in the society, which will assist them for life after football. This taxation system was not designed to cater for everyone and as a result footballers are exploited…the system forces our Sporting Heroes to live in abject poverty when their careers come to an end and SAFPU is calling for a Special tax dispensation in Sports.

…FORWARD WITH SPORTS TAX…
