Bears Don't Want to Swallow $4M Tax Bill



    The Chicago Bears think an administrative judge fumbled in his ruling about the organization owing back taxes.

    The Bears on Tuesday filed an appeal of the judge's September 7 decision that the organization owes Cook County more than $4 million in back amusement taxes and interest.

    The judge sided with the county's contention that tax applies to amenities that come with Soldier Field's club seats and luxury suites, such as food and beverages, the Chicago Tribune reported.

    But the Bears organization maintains the tax only applies to fees related to admission.
