Re: So you wanna be Dude for a Day...

For starters you pay taxes on the ENTIRE prize package. When they gave away the Kawi last year the grand total was $14500.00 or so. The taxes you pay are 30%....just like winning the lotto. So it's gonna be even more this year since the bike they are giving away is almost $11k to start with.

No cash option . If there was I would have taken that for sure. Better yet they could have taken the bike away from the prize package and been just the trip and all the other stuff.

Re: So you wanna be Dude for a Day...

Wouldn't you still make money if you paid the tax then sold the bike (as you did)?

The gubment isn't gonna miss a chance to reach in your pocket. All such prizes, gameshow winnings, etc. are taxable. And they take their share up front.

Re: So you wanna be Dude for a Day...

Rumour has it that the dude for a day sold that **** and bought a 954... Not that I'd know but I bet the 636 is trashed by now anyway...
