Derek Jeter Could Owe $16,000 For Receiving All His Gifts

Because Yankee legend Derek Jeter has been given all these farewell gifts, which are estimated to be valued at around $32,000, he now may be required to pay up to 16 G’s in state and federal taxes.  Teams have been giving Jeter random collections of junk all season, like a custom kayak, and cowboy boots, and my bet is that he’d rather just keep his 16k.


The Orioles gave Jeter some small trinkets, such as crabs, an oversized mallet, and a captains hat, but their primary gift was a $10,000 donation to Jeter’s charity, the Turn 2 Foundation, to educate children on how to live healthily. I’d venture to say that this was among Derek’s favorite gifts, but who knows, maybe he prefers the framed Reds’ jerseys from Cincinnati.
