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.

What happens if I win the house, but I cannot pay the taxes?
The NHBA works with Resource Bank on the Raising the Roof for Charity Home. Resource (and probably other banks) will offer a loan to cover the cost of the taxes, usually over $100,000. This allows winner to take possession/ownership of home to live in or sell. The home can be used as collateral for the loan.
