  1. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.


  1. Winners do not need to listen to the Station to win, but winners must be present to win.


e.   Winners must execute and return any required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within seven (7) days of being contacted by Station or prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected in a random drawing of the remaining valid entries.  If a potential Prize winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize.


  1. Payments of all federal, state and local taxes are solely the responsibility of the winner.  The winner will be required to complete and submit an IRS Form W-9 with the winner’s full Social Security Number or the equivalent for receipt of any prize valued at $600 or more or for any prizes awarded by the Station (or any other CBS Radio station in Station’s market) in a calendar year with an aggregate value of $600 or more.  Failure to submit a complete W-9 or equivalent will result in forfeiture of the prize.  Such winnings of $600 or more will be reported to the IRS.
