    Plus, they might not be able to pay the gov't because of gift taxes (I believe anything over $11,000 as a gift requies you to pay tax as income).

    Let the buyer beware.

    If someone cant afford maintence etc, let them sell it. It's no one elses business what they do with it.

    Depends on the state, but yes, there are definitely legalities for Roy to check into. I know there was one a couple years ago here or on another forum that turned out to actually be fake. (I know Roy's legit from what I've seen of him here.) I'm sure there'll be some kind of government permit he has to get.

    $100 and I'm so in!

    That's not universally true. Raffles are games of chance, and games of chance are regulated heavily in this country. I've looked into this extensively -- every state has different regulations regarding raffles, and it's a HIGHLY regulated business. You can't just got and do this willy-nilly without checking the laws.

    Here in New York, to hold a raffle, you MUST be involved with a charity, the charity must be registered with the state as a 501(c)3, the charity must have been established for a minimum of 2 years prior to holding the raffle, and the maximum value of the property to be raffled can be no more than $50k (or, if you write a letter and get approval from the state, $100k).

    taxes will kick the winners butt unless they already at very high income.

    If the tickets were $100 each, I would buy a couple. Maybe a few more if it was a nice silver Gallardo with e-gear!

    Would the ticket price be tax deductible?

    Personally, I think $100 x 1500 would give more variance as to who wins it [obviously]

    OR if you do 150x 1000 do it limit 1 ticket per person or some restriction that would prevent someone from buying like 50 tickets.

    obviously the latter gives the participant a better chance to win [1/150 as opposed to [1/1500].

    actually, in either case, it would be best to limit the tickets to 1 or 2 per person. its not exactly fair to those who cant afford to blow $25-50k on raffle tickets...

    How much is going to the charity? people are assuming 100%, i.e. you are effectively making a $150,000 donation/giving the car away. Or are you expecting to get the first $150,000 and any additional ticket sale revenue goes to the charity?

    No if we do it, it would be 100% of the TOTAL SALE to the fund.....
