Simone's Thoughts - This sweep is a perfect example of ARV vs FMV. On sweepstakes wins you only have to claim FMV = Fair Market Value on your taxes. The ARV of this sweep is $9,500 for a 1 night trip. The key to successfully claiming FMV is to price shop on everything you get with the sweep and keep copies of what the prize is really worth. That way when it comes to tax time, you can hopefully claim a more resonable amount for this prize. Since everything included with this is priceable (i.e. no celebrity appearance that might be up to them to value), you should be ok.
