Individual nonresident professional athletes who are not members of a professional athletic team and whose income is event-oriented (for example, golfers, tennis players, boxers, and jockeys) shall allocate to Arizona income earned in Arizona and expenses allowable in arriving at federal adjusted gross income that are allocable to the Arizona source income.
Example: A professional golfer comes into Arizona to compete in a tournament. The golfer wins $150,000 prize money based on success in the tournament. The golfer must report the $150,000 to Arizona as Arizona income. The golfer may subtract expenses that are allowable in arriving at federal adjusted gross income and that are incurred in winning the $150,000.
