SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT TAXES: Donations made to a Sweepstakes may not be tax-deductible and winner’s prizes may be tax deductible. All winners must complete an IRS Form W-9 prior to taking possession of or acquiring a Prize. NDA will issue a 1099-Misc for Prizes equal to the fair market value of the Prize on the date the winner was selected (or cash value where cash is selected as a Prize, as specified below), to the extent required by applicable law. Each winner is responsible for any payment of all local, state and federal taxes resulting from the income or use attributable to the receipt of any Prize and should consult his or her professional tax advisors regarding the Prize awarded. The Foundation will not provide tax advice to any winner of the Raffle.
WINNER SELECTION AND ODDS OF WINNING: Sponsor or designee will conduct a random drawing, and will award the prize(s), on the drawing date listed from all eligible entries received for each drawing to determine the Winner(s) (“Potential Winners”).
Entries are subject to verification by the Sponsor, and Potential Winners are not final Winners and will not receive a prize until their eligibility has been verified by the NDA. Odds of winning any drawing depend upon the total number of eligible entries received for each drawing. NDA reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify all suspect entries.
PRIZES: The prize(s) are described on the Campaign Page and in any special Campaign rules, including the approximate retail value for the prize(s). If a Winner declines a prize for any reason, the Winner will not receive any substitution or reimbursement of the prize or portion thereof. Taxes and fees, if any, are the sole responsibility of each Winner. The prizes are provided as-is with no guarantee. All warranties, whether express or implied, including the warranties of merchantability and fitness for a purpose, are hereby disclaimed by the released parties.
VERIFICATION OF WINNERS AND DELIVERY OF PRIZES: Potential Winner(s) will be notified by email and/or phone within one (1) business day after being selected in a drawing by the National Deer Association. Potential Winners are not Winners of any prize until their eligibility has been verified and they have received notice from NDA that they have won a prize, even if any information on the website on any other location indicates that an entrant has won.
Potential Winner(s) may be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility and liability release and, where permitted, a publicity release. If a Potential Winner cannot be contacted within one (1) week after NDA attempts notification, is ineligible to win a prize, fails to return any and all requested documentation within the time stated on the notification (whether or not Potential Winner actually receives that notification), refuses the prize, or otherwise fails to comply with these Official Rules, then the Potential Winner forfeits the prize in its entirety. If a Potential Winner forfeits a prize, NDA will select a substitute Potential Winner by random drawing of the remaining eligible entries.
