Rubio introduced the Olympic Tax Elimination Act, which exempts Olympic medal recipients from having to pay taxes on the medals they won. When athletes win Olympic medals they also win honorariums. Gold medal winners receive $25,000, silver medal winners receive $25,000, and bronze medal winners get $10,000. Rubio's legislation would end taxes on those honorariums. "Athletes representing our nation overseas in the Olympics shouldn’t have to worry about an extra tax bill waiting for them back home," Rubio said in a statement.
