Drawing to be held on Saturday, February 8, 2014, at Arizona Science Center’s Galaxy Gala (“Event”). Employees of Arizona Science Center, US Airways, Fantastica Italia, Jewelry by Gauthier, E.D. Marshall, and members of the immediate family of any such employees are not eligible to participate. The winner(s) must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age to participate. Winner(s) need not be present to win. Prize(s) must be claimed within 30 days. TAXES AND IRS RULES: Winner(s) shall be responsible for any and all federal, state and local income or excise taxes, fees, assessments and like charges associated with the prizes. Winner(s) shall be responsible for securing any documentation required to travel internationally. SPECIAL NOTE: At the time of this printing, federal law requires that corresponding tax withholding on prize values of $5,000 or greater must be collected from winner(s) upon award and distribution. Federal and state withholding laws are subject to change without notice. The withholding laws in effect at the time prizes are claimed will be followed. The IRS has taken the position that amounts paid for chances to participate in raffles, lotteries or similar programs are not gifts and, therefore, the price of the entry does not qualify as a deductible charitable contribution. All taxes must be paid in full before claiming prize. Payment for all income taxes should be made payable to Arizona Science Center with bank certified funds or by bank wire.
