http://gas2.org/2015/09/27/the-perfect-tesla-raffle-will-benefit-climate-xchange/Climate XChange.org is raffling off a brand new Tesla Model S or Model X. That news all by itself might be enough to get lots of people reaching for their wallets. But most new car raffles aren’t perfect; after you win the car, you have to sell it or take out a loan to pay the taxes on your winnings.
When Alan Langerman’s wife, Jessica, asked him to design a raffle to raise money for Climate XChange, he decided he wanted the winner to be able to just get in and drive without a lot of hassles or aggravation. That meant he had to create the perfect Tesla raffle. What does that mean? It means the winner gets $110,450 to put toward the purchase of either a Model S or Model X built just the way he or she wants it — right color, right equipment, and right interior options. But that’s not all.
The winner will also receive an additional $36,370 to pay any liability owed to the IRS, state income taxes, excise taxes, and registration fees. That would make the raffle almost perfect. What would it take to put it over the top on the perfection scale? The winner will also receive a Tesla wall charger and $500 to pay an electrician to install it. Now it’s perfect. Some would say it’s pluperfect!
The tickets are $250, but as stated, taxes are paid, and there's only 2000 tickets available.
