Animal Shelter of Northeast Nebraska, a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, is conducting the (A.S.N.N.) and Platinum VIP Events Car Raffle (Raffle) pursuant to California Penal Code Section 320.5, et seq, to raise funds for ongoing charitable purposes. The Rules and Regulations of the Raffle are set forth below. By purchasing a Raffle ticket the purchaser agrees to be bound by these rules and regulations. ASNN’s interpretation and application of these rules and regulations shall be final.
The Grand Prize Drawing for the Raffle will be held on April 16th, 2019. Tickets will not be sold after March 31st, 2019. Tickets may sell out before that time. The drawing may be open to the public, but the winner does not need to be present to win.
Only 5,000 tickets will be sold. The chances of winning are based on that number. If fewer tickets are sold, your chances of winning the Grand Prize improves. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has taken the position that amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes are not gifts, and consequently, do not qualify as deductible charitable contributions.
If the Grand Prize Car (Car) is chosen as the prize, the Grand Prize winner shall assume all fees, local, state and federal taxes, sales tax, financing costs which must be paid prior the Car being transferred to the winner. Likewise, there are federal taxes and there may be state and/or local tax consequences if the winner selects the alternate cash prize. (See Prize section below.) These consequences may apply to other prizes as well. ASNN or Platinum VIP Events takes no responsibility for any tax liabilities or costs. Consult your tax advisor. This offer is void where prohibited by law, and all federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.
