TAXES: The value of the Prize may be taxable to the Winner as income. The filing of any forms and the payment of any taxes, except as otherwise stated herein, are the sole responsibility of the Winner. In order to receive the Prize, the Winner must provide any tax document or tax information requested by Sponsor or required by applicable law, including, without limitation, his or her TIN. Sponsor shall make a Tax Payment for the Prize which shall be calculated and paid to the IRS in accordance with applicable law to offset some or all of the potential tax owed on the Prize.

Payment of any Tax Payment may increase the ARV of the Prize to a maximum of six thousand seven hundred and eighty-four dollars ($6,784.00). If for any reason Sponsor is unable to gross-up the Prize in order to pay the taxes, or determines it is not permitted by law to do so, the Winner will be required to pay the appropriate taxes and will have no claim against Sponsor or any other MLB Entity for Sponsor failing to make any payment. Winner is not entitled to claim any check, cash or other form of payment for the difference in value between the amount paid by Sponsor including the Tax Payment and the maximum ARV. For the sake of clarity, notwithstanding any Tax Payment paid to the IRS, payment of all taxes, including, without limitation, withholding or income taxes, owed to the IRS or other tax authority, remains the responsibility of the Winner. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if required by applicable law, Sponsor may, prior to or following the distribution of the Prize, withhold, reduce the Prize, or charge the Winner in order to fulfill any tax or withholding requirements imposed on Sponsor by the IRS or other relevant tax authority. If Winner fails to provide appropriate documentation or make any tax-related payment as requested by Sponsor or as required by law, the Prize may, at Sponsor's discretion, be forfeited. Except to the extent paid by Sponsor as a Tax Payment, Winner shall indemnify Sponsor and the other MLB Entities for any costs, charges and taxes associated with the payment of taxes associated with the Prize.
