If the Prize winner cannot be located after reasonable attempts to make contact through the information provided at the time of purchasing the Ticket, such winner will forfeit said prize and a new winner will be selected.
Non-Deductibility of Ticket Purchase
The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts, and consequently, the purchase of a Ticket does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution.
The raffle winner has potential income tax liability and all taxes are the sole responsibility of the winner. Each purchaser of Tickets is advised to consult his or her own tax advisors with respect to tax liabilities that may arise from winning a prize in this Raffle. Winners of prizes of $1,000 or more may be required to submit a W-2G, Form 5754 or similar tax form (provided by SH) for tax withholding purposes. Fair market value of the prize will be based on the vehicles retail price. Be aware that said vehicle may not be turned over to the winner till SH receives the proper amount of withholding tax from the winner, which is established by the IRS guidelines, Notice 1340.
