Federal Trade Commission She would not release my winning check to me unless I paid my differential taxes. Washington, District of Columbia
*Consumer Comment: Sad.
The first time for asking for money to cover courier cost ($3,400)
The second time asking for money to cover registration cost ($8,7000) they did not know the state of california had.
The third time asking for money to cover taxes that were not taken out ($10,500)
The fourth time asking for money to cover new courier cost because I was bumped up to first place ($26,500)
The fifth time asking for money to cover differential tax because I was claiming the prize in a new fiscal year I had to pay the differential tax before delivery of check could happen.
The last straw the first place person could not claim there price and instead of FTC taking out the right amont of tax they said I had to come up with $105,000.00 in differential tax before the check could be delivered. I told them I do not have the money and if they delivered the winning check I would pay them the tax. They said no.
I called the IRS to see if it was true about paying the differential tax before receiving the check and the IRS said that I should receive the check then pay the taxes on my income tax in april.
I had to let the winning check go back to Capital Sweepstakes because I could not come up with the tax.
