Would some tax knowledgable person PLEASE explain the following to me.
I won some money in the US which I have received by cheque. However I read
in the fine print that 37% has been deducted for Federal and State taxes. As
a non resident of the US just where do I apply to seee if I am eligible for
a tax rebate. I don't live there, have never been to the US yet I am paying
taxes. Strange one, Any ideas on this please. Thanks for any advice and
taking up your time. Regards ConnieD.

only 37% huh?          I guess it is because you earned the money  in that
state,in the US. but I am no tax expert.      congrats on wining though!

You are 'orrible PAT WINTERS!!! Did you get that Uncle Sam!!!<VBG>
I wouldn't mind if it was mega cash but it amounts to the grand total of
GUESS................ Well let's say I could buy about 10 metres "El cheapo"
fabrics OR I could get from here to Arnhem by train.... not even enough for
a taxi ride so the money grabbing fiends have robbed me of 37% of
practically nothing anyway.
Well I shall continue playing and hopefully win that elusive million then
it's a FQ all round LOL.......

Connie I emailed you some information - let me know if you didn't get it. The US
taxes any income earned or gotten here and they withhold money against those
taxes due to make sure they get it. You can probably get it back (or at least
get some back) by filing a 1040NR form, but that can't be done until our next
tax season in Jan to April 15, 2001.  :>(
Good luck, Midge

 The DIL of one of my receptionists is on the show today. Last name of
Heston, in re parenting.
 Now she was told she would be in the front row, but a camera crew was at
her home all day Tuesday, filming her thoughts on the subject. Flown to the
show yesterday and put up in a nice place. She is most e***d for her son.
He is 11, and this will get him 'out of the mountains and his first plane
ride'.
 She is a SAHM, so I imagine that might be part of the topic. My
receptionist is not machine competent, so I have both of my VCR's set, so
she can have a copy. We are hoping her DIL gets to give at least a small
presentation.

Connie: I work for an accounting firm in sales: per 1 of our accountants:
Assuming you won the money this year, you have
to wait til 2000 is over & file a federal form 1040NR for non-
resident. You will also need to get a non-resident state income
tax form from whatever state you won the money from. Might
address it to whatever state Dept of the Treasury. No promises,
but good luck.
