ZURICH (AP) - FIFA has reported a profit of $89 million for 2012 and has reserves of $1.37 billion.

FIFA published accounts that showed revenue of $1.16 billion last year and spending of $1.07 billion.

The 2012 report covers the second year of a four-year financial cycle for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

FIFA pays no tax on commercial income from the World Cup because of its status as a not-for-profit association in Swiss law.

Blatter's salary and benefits were not detailed.

He was among FIFA leaders and executives - defined as "key management personnel" - who shared payments totaling $33.5 million.
