Yesterday i won a prize of 24 boxes of Puffs tissues
Grand Prize of One (1) Star Pendent in 14kt yellow gold with � carat total weight diamonds with 17" 14kt yellow gold chain (ARV $995). After receipt of this information an affidavit will be forwarded to you via Priority Mail to be completed and notarized. We will be asking for your SS# on the affidavit, because we are required to file taxes on this prize. Any prize over $600 must be reported to the IRS for tax purposes.

Don't think i'll claim it cause of the taxes

Claim it then sell the gold for scrap. I think you will come out better.

Prize winning values are taxed at your regular tax rate. The awarding organization reports the prize value on a 1099 form that is filed with the IRS & you should get a copy also. This is then reported on your 1040 for the year as income -- thus, your regular tax rate (highest bracket being about 35%)
