For many of our experiences, the winner will be responsible for any applicable taxes. We’ll issue the winner a W-9 form so that they are able to report their prize winnings to the government. All winners that receive a Prize with an approximate retail value of $600 or more will be issued a Form 1099.
However, for some of our vehicle experiences, sales tax is prepaid and up to 25% of the ARV, or Approximate Retail Value, will be paid by Omaze to the winner in lieu of income taxes. You will see the ARV listed for each individual vehicle experience on the experience page under the section entitled, "stuff our lawyers want you to read". Please note that rules will vary for each experience, so it is always important to read the rules for each individual experience you wish to enter.
