But then, there are taxes. Each hockey season is played during two calendar years, however, given an annual salary in the U.S. of $875,000 we can estimate that he would have to pay $281,534 in federal income taxes. That is about the same amount of tax as the tax paid by 35 median high school teachers, 39 median police officers, or 56 median fire fighters. After paying the IRS, he would have $593,466 left over. However, he may still have to use some of that money to pay state or city taxes as well.
