“PODS Big Move”

At the end of the tax year for which the prize is awarded, prize winner will be issued a Form 1099 equivalent to the retail value of the prize, for income verification and tax purposes. Prize winner must report income to the IRS. In the event it is deemed during the verification process that a potential prize winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the prize, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and another respective prize winner may be selected from among the remaining non-winning eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Valid social security numbers will be determined by IRS requirements.
