Dear, *** *** If you live in the United States, you are required by law to pay sweepstakes taxes on all of your prize winnings. Legally, this includes everything from grand prize wins like; money, cars and dream houses to smaller prizes like t-shirts and baseball caps. Find out what to expect from sweepstakes taxes and what you should do to prepare for them. File Form W-2G to report gambling winnings and any federal income tax withheld on those winnings. The requirements for reporting and withholding depend on the type of gambling, the amount of the gambling winnings, and generally the ratio of the winnings to the wager. File W-2G with the IRS. An Agent must provide a statement to the winner. A total sum of $495.00 is due for coverage of processing, certifying, and registration of the taxpayer W-2G IRS stamp. A certified check will be sent in your mail of refundable funds sent towards receiving this jackpot. We accept payments through: WESTERN UNION/MONEY GRAM MONEY TRANSFER. Please note that all receipts must be kept for proof of payments.
