Important Information Regarding Tax Withholding

The following information applies to all 2012 World Championship prize payouts:

Important Information Regarding Tax Withholding for All Non-US Citizens

For every event held in the US, a 30% US withholding tax will automatically be deducted from the prize check of all international players, unless the player has an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, or ITIN, that has been filed with the withholding agent. Even if your country currently has a tax treaty with the United States, your winnings will still be subject to the 30% US tax withholding unless you have an ITIN on file. (To apply for an ITIN, please use IRS form W-7, found at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw7.pdf.)

In some cases, players may be eligible to reclaim the 30% withheld. Please consult with a tax professional in your area to determine if you qualify for a treaty exemption or for any other tax questions you may have. Hasbro, Inc will mail international prize recipients a Form 1042-S showing the amount of the gross income and any US tax withheld at the end of the tax year. Forms for prizes paid in 2011 will be sent in March 2012.

The 1042-S forms are very important, and should not be thrown away. It is recommended that you keep your 1042-S forms for five years. If you do not receive your 1042-S, you must contact us within one year to request a copy.

Important Information Regarding Tax Withholding for Non-California Residents

Please be aware that if you are not a resident of the state of California, and your winnings total $1500 USD or more, those winnings will be subject to 7% California tax withholding. This amount will automatically be deducted from your prize check.

This applies to both international citizens and to US residents of states other than California.

You will be mailed a form CA 592-B by January 31, 2012 that shows the prize winnings and California State withholdings. In some cases, the amount withheld may be reclaimed at the end of the tax year. For more information on California filing requirements, call the numbers listed below:
From within the United States, call: (800) 852-5711
From outside the United States, call (not toll-free): +1 (916) 845-6500

Additionally for every event held in the United States, the US withholding tax of 30% will automatically be deducted from the prize check of all international players, unless the proper treaty exemption documentation has been filed with the withholding agent. Please consult with a tax professional to determine if you qualify for a treaty exemption or any other tax questions you may have. Hasbro, Inc will mail the 2011 Form 1042-S showing the amount of the gross income and any US tax withheld to the prize recipients in March 2012.
