MONTANA AGENT REBUTS REPORT LINKING HIM TO TAX PROBE
Published December 20, 1994
In response to recent allegations concerning Joe Montana's involvemtn in the federal probe of the memorabilia industry, Montana's agent, Peter Johnson of IMG, issued a statement yesterday saying that the N.Y. DAILY NEWS story regarding Montana was wrong. Johnson: "Joe Montana has always reported all income from private signings to the Internal Revenue Service, and, therefore, paid taxes on fees he received. He has participated in private signings in the past, including the 1991 signing organized by Michael Bertolini. Joe has been under contract to Upper Deck Authenticated for several years, and they hold Joe's exclusive rights for signed memorabilia. Joe's only dilemma is how certain reporters and publications can report erroneous stories and not be held accountable for their actions" (IMG).
