Bill Self, the head coach of the University of Kansas' men's basketball team, makes more than $2.75 million a year. He also pays almost no income tax, public radio station KCUR reported Monday.
Self was able to drastically cut his taxable income because of reforms signed into law in 2012 by Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, KCUR found. The cuts — which Brownback said would create thousands of jobs — eliminated income taxes for some types of businesses.
Because Self receives the bulk of his annual compensation through an LLC, only a small sliver of his income is ever taxed.
