The Grand Prize Winner assumes and must pay all income taxes, local, state and federal taxes when the vehicle is transferred to the Grand Prize Winner. In addition, all costs of vehicle ownership, such as (without limitation) insurance, extended warranties and accessories, are the Winner’s sole responsibility. Arizona Elk Society assumes no responsibility for paying the Grand Prize Winner’s income tax obligations and suggests the Winner consult a tax advisor. Arizona Elk Society will collect the income tax from the Grand Prize Winner. A Form 1099 will be filed with the IRS to report the value of the prize won. The Grand Prize Winner will also receive a copy of these forms. This offer is void where prohibited by law and all federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.
SPECIAL NOTE: At the time of this printing, federal law requires that corresponding tax withholding on prize values in excess of $5,000.00 must be collected from winners upon award and distribution. Federal and state withholding laws are subject to change without notice. The withholding laws in effect at the time prizes are claimed will be followed. The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries or similar programs are not gifts and, therefore, the price of the entry does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution.
THE PRIZES: There are a total of seven (7) prizes, one grand prize and six secondary prizes:
