CLAIMING PRIZES – Potential winners are required to claim their prize within six (6) months of the drawing. In order to claim and receive their prize, potential winners may, at the sole discretion of the Raffle Administrator, be required to provide identification, to provide proof of eligibility, to contact the Raffle Administrator, to appear in person, and/or to complete paperwork. All potential winners may be required to complete, execute and return an IRS Form 5754, an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release, a prize release form, a selection of prize form and a publicity release in order to claim their prize(s). If a potential winner does not claim a prize within the required period, does not execute and return required documents within the specified time period, is not in compliance with these rules, or is otherwise found to be ineligible, then, at the Raffle Administrator’s sole discretion, the potential winner will be disqualified and the prize(s) will be forfeited and donated back to The Board of Visitors.
TAXES – The purchase price of raffle tickets does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution. Each prize winner is responsible for any and all federal, state and local income or excise taxes, fees, assessments, and like charges associated with their prize and for paying any such amounts. Raffle winnings are taxable income and must be reported as such on income tax returns. Raffle winners may be asked by the Raffle Administrator to complete documentation as may be required by the Raffle Administrator. At the time of this printing, federal law requires that the corresponding federal income tax withholding for prizes valued at more than $5,000 must be collected from winners upon prize distribution. Thus, prizes valued at more than $5,000 will be distributed only after an amount equal to 28% of the value of the prize is withheld or collected for the corresponding federal tax. Federal and state tax withholding laws are subject to change without notice. The withholding laws in effect at the time prizes are distributed will be followed.
STATEMENTS – Statements made regarding the raffle are based on information available to the Raffle Administrator at the time these rules were first printed.
