I'm just curious how many pro fighters in the smaller events report there purses to the IRS? Do guys making $100-$500 per fight even bother? What form do you use?
Some shows pay in cash and some require you to fill out a W-9 before the fights and pay you via check. Usually its the sanctioning body that makes you fill out the w-9 although some promoters do it on their own.

Bullshit, taxes are stealing, its wrong for a government to coercively take your income without your consent. I support any and all methods of income tax evasion.
