CAMPAIGN DRAWINGS + PRIZES

Can I watch the drawing live? How will I find out who wins?

The drawing will take place virtually using a third party random drawing company and it’ll be supervised by a third party certified public auditor. Winners will be notified as soon as possible after the drawing on 6/28/19 but prior to 7/12/19.

How will winners be notified?

We’ll use the contact information provided at the time of entry to notify the winners. You can also find the winning names on omazedreamhouse.com/prizewinners shortly after the drawing.

How will I have proof of entry?

Each online entry will receive an emailed PDF receipt of the order. For mail and phone orders, we’ll send a PDF receipt to the contact information provided at the time of purchase.

Will the drawing be subject to oversight?

Yes, an independent third party auditor will draw winning names for all drawings.

What are the differences between each drawing?

What is the address of the grand prize home?

For the safety of the current resident, we can’t share the exact address of the house (thanks for understanding!), but it’s in a beautiful and highly desirable area of Laguna Hills.

Can I pick a different home?

No. However, if the grand prize winner does not want to take possession of the grand prize home, they can elect to take the cash alternative.

ODDS OF WINNING

How many entries will be awarded? Is there a cap?

Nope! There’s no cap to how many entries will be awarded.

How do you know there will be 1 in 50 odds?

Odds are calculated based on the number of guaranteed prizes and the expected volume of entries. We forecast the expected number of entries based on values seen with previous campaigns of high prize values.

Can I win more than one prize?

Yes! If you enter before Early Bird, enter as a Multi-Entry order, or participate in Weekly Add-On Drawings, you’ll still remain in the drawing for the grand prize and sub-prizes. However, the grand prize winner is unable to win any of the sub-prizes.

TAXES

Is my donation tax deductible?

Generally, donations made in connection with sweepstakes entries may be tax deductible for the amount beyond any value assigned to the entry. It's important to note that there are varying legal interpretations on how to determine value, ranging from zero to 100%. You should consult your tax professional about whether you should choose to write off your donation. If you do, all donations are made directly to CAF America and the confirmation email we sent you at the time of purchase acts as your receipt of donation.

Do I have to pay taxes if I win?

Omaze will not be covering taxes on prizes. However, there are cash alternatives for prizes valued at $5K+ so all selected winners will be able to accept their prize.

Are sweepstakes prizes considered income?

Sweepstakes prizes may be considered income in some countries but not in others. Generally, in the United States, all sweepstakes prizes are considered taxable income. To help you work with your tax professional, and determine whether this applies to you, we provide W9 tax forms for all prizes over $600.
