What are the taxes collected at the time of transfer of the home to winner?
A “gaming tax” is collected at the time the house is transferred to the winner of the home. This has typically been 25% of the appraised value of the house in past years, however, this may change from year to year. The winner of the home is then responsible for State and Federal Income Taxes when they file their personal tax returns. We do not calculate or collect for their personal taxes due on the home.

Over 2,300 square feet of living space and 3,212 in total square feet
