I just won a $5,000 shopping spree at Best Buy

I just won a $5,000 shopping spree at Best Buy. What should I buy?! A sweet TV is high on the list, and maybe some Apple products...

Nice! On a gun forum you should take orders for products that can be traded for guns and ammo ... maybe.

Seriously though, if you like movies/music at all, get a nice tv and a nice receiver to go with it. You can always add/upgrade the speakers to go with it as $$ allows!

In short no, because he hasn't received any income if it is a scam. Glenshaw Glass requires three elements to qualify as income. (1) Undeniable accession to wealth; (2) complete dominion and control; (3) clearly realized. None of these elements are present when there is no prize/money recieved. Even if it is not a scam he will not have to pay income taxes if he disclaims the prize within a resonable period of time. Otherwise if it is not a scam and he accepts it, then yes he will have a tax burden.

This is not legal advice.

My question was a joke.

I rather have the cash than anything at best buy, so I would buy stuff I could easily re-sale.

Really? With all the Appleheads in the world willing to pay $$$ for the latest and greatest 'whatever'?

It makes perfect sense to buy them for resale. I can't think of anything else for sale at Best Buy that would be worth much of anything once it passes the receipt checker.

Congrats! If you have any extra cash to spend I definitely could use a new TV and stand with a good surround sound system.

The newest IMac with the fusion drive, go for the 27" model and that will be about half of your money problem solved.
