Well, yeah, it would depend upon the final amount you managed to win, I would think.
Also, you have to think that if you win 32k (or any amount for that matter), you’re going to be taxed to the bejesus-belt, so in this instance, you’d prob’ly end up with ~16k out of which you’re giving them 2k? Pretty healthy thanks, I’d say.
BTW, do you think Cecil would agree to be the guy you could call?
I don’t think I would have to pay tax. We don’t pay taxes on lottery winnings etc. over here.
I’ll assume you’re kidding because you seem like an intelligent guy. An intelligent drunk guy, but who needs to cast aspersions.
You’ll never receive anything close to what you won on the show. Uncle Sam and Rudy will pocket their share long before you ever see a check.
Furthermore, New York, ahh New York, has a game show tax. When the state and the feds are done flipping you upside down and shaking the change outta your pockets, you’ll get about 55% percent of what Regis said you won.
Oh, no Chris, I think Yoji is right, he’s in Ireland, you know. Here in Germany they don’t pay tax on lottery winnings either, although as an American I would have to pay the US tax. For some reason, that just pisses me off. Heck, I don’t even want to win the lottery anymore!
they don’t send anyone round.
Remember the friends can’t watch the recording.
Friends are just asked to stay at home and not make phone calls. They get a call from the show to check they’re ready, then Chris Tarrant takes over.
Since you only have 30 seconds, and you have to hear the question first, it’s difficult to look things up.
