Cool...about how much are these receiving taxes if you do win a set?

P.S. Umm..i see there are 2 Children of Hurin contest that on purpose or..? Just wanted to point it out if it isnt..
Yes it was on purpose, but I have now locked the other one and linked it to this thread. There is also a news item on the home page with rules identical to this one.

Concerning Rule 10): The taxes mentioned would be any applicable local taxes that your juridiction might levy on goods and services won. Mine levies none other than counting it towards income tax which would in this case probably be too small to worry about; though if it was gambling winnings or if I won the lottery, they would want it right away. We are trying to get a ruling from Grep about whether he might be able to cover the cost of shipping so the winners won't be saddled with that.
