My 15 cent Opinion--"Splitting the winnings"
« on: September 10, 2006, 12:24:47 PM »
I keep reading that people are/were talking about "splitting" the winnings,
but being an accountant/bookkeeper sort, I do have a problem with that!

I am only playing the role of the "Devil's Advocate".  :sera: :flirt:

The winner of money or prizes have to pay the Income Tax on the entire
amount, so how do they "split" the money?

Since there is a limit on "giving" money to someone "Tax free" ($11,000.00 per year
per person) the Income Tax on any more than that would be due by both parties.

Sounds good "In theory or in strategy", and I'm sorry to rain on anyone's parade,
but there are downsides to that kind of agreement, LOL!

THANKS FOR ALL THE ENTERTAINMENT, ESPECIALLY TO THE LIVE FEED UPDATERS! :woohoo:  :jumpy:

Good point! I can't see the winner paying taxes on the whole amount to give it away! I was offended by all the talk of splitting the money, it doesn't seem right to me. They also discussed having people come in and doing a short time consultation and paying them for that. (Way around splitting the money.) I didn't like that either. :jam:

Maybe they are talking about splitting the money left over after taxes, with the other person taking less for their part of the taxes. But more than likely it just sounded good and they didn't think about the details.

Anyway, I know Boogie won't share his part with Erika.

Probably will be around 35K or less after taxes. I think there is a HUGE tax on game show winnings. This is considered a game show isn't it? Where you compete for a prize?

I thought that it was against the rules to split the money.

I remember Rob and Amber saying that their winning from Survivor All Star had to be kept in separate bank accounts
maybe BB is different, but i doubt it
I also recall Will saying on a few different occasions that he wasn't allowed to talk about splitting money and he kept getting in trouble from the producers
then  he would make sure he said that this is a verbal agreement and is good under Cali laws

The taxes are 30%( I believe) on money that is won,it is for the lottery anyway.Under 10,000 its 20%.

The only way Janelle gets more is if America votes for her. From what we all know, people could be jamming the lines voting for any of the other 6 jury members. :P

Anywho...I don't think Boogie will split it with Will if he does end up winning. He's lied to Erika...what makes us think he's telling the truth to his best friend? ;)

Welcome to RFF Seanaci.  :hithere: :hello2: I dunno. He's getting what his big fat ego wanted F2 and most likely winning (koff koff) the entire thing.  :groan:

They are business partners and he talks all the time about street cred whatever THAT is. (Does he have any left?)  :crazy: He told Will the other day that no matter what they would still be 50/50 and I think he probably will split it somehow.

Thanks. :D

And that's true. I don't have as much info as most because I don't have the live feeds...and I'm far too busy at work to read them everyday. >_<

Anywho. If Boogie wins it all, he might be stuck in the house till his ego shrinks...if that can even happen. ;)

I think his overstuffed ego is going to take a big hit the minute he gets out of the house. He isn't loved, he isn't admired, polar opposites to what his puny little brain imagines.

I think that many of the houseguest are in for a very rude awakening when they get out and see what the wold thinks of them.

I think the world likes most of them. The rude awakening will be what the other hg said about them all in the name of winning money.
