NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Yankees will pay a luxury tax for the 15th consecutive season.

The Bronx Bombers owe $15.7 million, according to final figures compiled by the commissioner’s office and obtained by The Associated Press. The Yankees will now have paid a total of $341 million since the tax began.

The Dodgers will pay the highest luxury tax, $36.2 million — the fourth straight year they are being penalized.
