知名记者Jacob Wolf今(19)日爆料,台籍《英雄联盟》辅助选手SwordArt在与北美TSM战队谈约时因移民与税务法令而遭遇瓶颈,他表示由于SwordArt名义上仍是中国公民,而中美之间并没有税务协议可供优惠,因此SwordArt在美收入很可能会被两国连课两次税。另一方面,“大师兄”Doublelift又表示如果他新赛季无法跟外国顶级辅助选手搭配就考虑退役,因此对TSM来说如何解决SwordArt的合约问题不只影响战力补强规划,甚至是整体队伍结构能否组成的严重问题。

台籍《英雄联盟》辅助选手SwordArt近日被美记者爆料将前往北美老牌队伍TSM,将以年薪多达八位数人民币的价码加盟队伍,新赛季将与Doublelift搭档。不过今日却传出变量,知名记者Jacob Wolf今日爆料,SwordArt与TSM的合约谈判虽已接近完成,但却在此关键时刻陷入瓶颈。Jacob Wolf表示,SwordArt“技术上来说”仍是中国公民,而中国与美国政府之间并没有相关的税务协定。因此SwordArt在美的收入将会被两国政府两次收税,这让双方的谈判陷入僵局。

Getting a visa for a Chinese citizen (Taiwan is still technically China, despite many Westerners recognizing otherwise) there being no tax treaty between the China-U.S. means that SwordArt would effectively be double taxed on his TSM earnings, if he were to sign. Rough.

另一方面,Jacob Wolf表示TSM主力下路选手Doublelift向队伍表示如果新赛季无法与外国顶级辅助搭档的话他会考虑直接退役,这会让TSM一口气失去他们原本赖以取胜的中下两路选手,也会让他们原本打算签下SwordArt与Huni两名外援的队伍补强计划崩盘,因此对TSM来说SwordArt的签约问题不只是补强层面的问题,更是整个队伍结构组成的问题,因此非常重视。

Coming into America as a guest or tourist is different than making money from an American corporation. Even esports athletes from U.S. allies (Germany, Canada, etc.) still have to have P-1A internationally recognized athlete visas to enter.

Jacob Wolf在回应一位网友质疑时表示,SwordArt如果最终得以赴美,他将与来自德国、加拿大等其他国家的选手一样持P1-A运动员签证入境,不过根据,台湾公民应仍可透过填写I-129表格申请P类签证入境并在美国工作。

Riot's view on the situation means actually nothing though. This has to do with how the U.S. State Department views it and my opinion does not matter.
I'm notably (scroll my timeline) pretty outspoken about how China treats Hong Kong and the Uighurs. What I think means nothing.

Jacob Wolf在回应一位在美工作的台湾网友时表示,这整件事与Riot Games无关,唯一有关的是美国政府如何看待台籍选手的国籍问题,而美国政府并没有正式承认台湾为独立主权国家,也因此将SwordArt视为中国籍,并依照中国选手的方式征税。但其下亦有网友翻找出指出,美国国税局是允许中国所得税抵免的,因此认为Jacob Wolf这次的爆料不实,SwordArt不会被扣两次税。目前TSM、SwordArt皆未公开回应相关传闻。
