What If I win a car, do I have to pay the Taxes?

Do you have to pay taxes on a winning prize? Making money through sweepstakes is not just restricted to a few fast bucks alone. Sometimes it could be big jackpots too. Even though it is quite rare but it is something that can really happen to you too one day or the other. You could grab those millions of dollars and other fabulous prizes through the sweepstakes from bit sponsors. It is why there is always a huge crowd flurrying in to get their entries done at the earliest possible for prominent sweepstakes all the while.

So what If I win a car, do I have to pay the Taxes? Taxes are to be paid all the while whenever you win a prize. There is no escaping from taxes. Exemption for the taxes are also there regarding which you will be informed while entering into the contract in the affidavit. Each and every terms and condition is stated clearly in the affidavit and you will have to decide on whether or not you would like to pay the taxes to claim the prize. It will be asked in the terms over there prior to awarding you the prize money. If you are not willing to pay the taxes to claim the prize, then you would not sign it and you are naturally disqualified for the award.

PCH Car Sweepstakes

Win A Brand New Lincoln MKZ

Other than the United States in other countries if I win a car, do I have to pay the Taxes? Most places it is yes. You got to pay and there is no exemption for that in Canada and Mexico too.

How about the European countries if I win a car, do I have to pay the Taxes? Some of the countries have peculiar regulations while some others emphasis on paying taxes as well. In certain parts of south Asian countries you might be exempted from such taxes.

Sweepstakes entries are to be filled in with great care while you send in your entries. If there is any error, you might be getting disqualified. If the sponsor cannot contact you with the information that you provide them then there is no good in emerging as a winner. You will not be notified and ultimately it is a loss to both the sponsor as well as yourself. Sponsors do this for advertisement and promotion of their brands and when nobody wins an awarded claim then it is waste of time for them as well.

    If i were to win anything from PCH i can swear to god these things. First i will publish my book and mail out everyone a free copy of it because i am not just a nurse but i come from a huge medical family and in 2010 i had to have upper neck and back surgery because i had no disk’s from C2-C7. They were gone totally ! That is when i sat back and asked what could i do to help everyone out and this came to mind. You see i also happen to have a medical problem but i could have a great many other medical issues from what i have been through including being pronounced dead 3 times.
    So i sat down and got together all the information i could find at the time, so i must say my book has a ton of information in it but we all will find other information not listed in it. And i started to but it together including over 200 places where everyone can get free medication and 3 places that will pay for your hospital bills and 1 of the 3 will pay for Doctors visits as well !!!
    Like i said i’m a nurse but try having a grandmother who retired doing billing in the hospital, a cousin who is still working and a mother who retired running both Hospital and nursing homes at the age of 75, an aunt that is not just an RN but also teaches Nursing, a Doctor, and over a dozen other RN’s in our family as well ! And i am not kidding at all.
    As you can see i also use to do leatherwork at bike shows as well as benefits. And i always tried my best and told everyone if they could wait until a benefit all the money goes to the benefit. The reason why the toy for tots is close to my heart is if you are close to southern AL. & MS. when the toy runs come around please go to them because when i lived in the panhandle of FL. very few bikes would go to the Toy runs in those states and that is not right for the kids.
    And i even have stuff for kids to learn math easier, and to make it fun for them. The reason for math was that was the subject in the south that the teachers would not teach much of at all, and i went to school in both the north and south and what a difference! And i had a math teacher that did up what she called ” Math Cards “. So when you flipped them over you had the answer. But this teacher would not even give you any help at all if you were stuck on a problem.
    As for Common Core i have had first had knowledge with it with my son in school. And i will be honest and tell you ” unless you want the kids dumbed down ” vote for common core! Because the teacher would tell the kids to wright this sentence ” We be doing this and we be doing that ” My son came home with a paper with this on it. ” We b don thiz and we b don that ” And he got an A on it, I hit the roof & to the school i went & found out the teachers praise the kids for this and i was like ” Why not teach them the right way to start with?”

This is a gift from the heart that keeps on giving and leaves a legacy of love to the Winner’s Family. I wish with all my heart I win this Brand New Lincoln MKZ because I have a 1997 Chevy that is falling apart, broke down all the time, and I really need transportation since I live alone and no one to help me, and I really want to win the $5,000.00 A Week “Forever” Prize to financially help me to stabilize my life to pay all my debts and obligations, buy a small home, car, clothes, take a vacation, furniture, appliances, help my Autistic Grandson, my Disabled Son, and rest of my family since I just lost my Grandson 22, church, and the poor. Most of all I won’t have to stress and worry anymore and I could live content, happy, and independent and not have to worry about being a burden to anyone. I pray God helps me to win if it is meant to be. Thank you Dear God and PCH Team for all you do to help others. God Bless You All and have a wonderful day.

I would like to pay off $25,000. Home Equity Loan & @ least 4,000.00 on credit card to buy groceries & gas for my “95” Chevy for which my uncle left me when he passed away. If I only won the car Inwould be disqualified for I wouldn’t have the taxes etc to pay for car insurance also. Could never work. My house needs a makeover terribly & I would donate to St. Jude’s Children Hospital & to the abused dogs & cats in my State first. Hopefully I’ll have enough to live on for the rest of my time here left on this Earth. Thank You.
