  1. Awesome giveaway but it would be hard to recoup the roughly $11k or so needed to cover the tax liability.
    Thanks for posting 🙂

    • I thought I was the only one that instantly thinks taxes when I see people win large prizes!

      • You’re not the only one, trust me… A lot of the stuff could be sold but it won’t be worth face value. The majority of the ARV is going to the Trips ( they are awesome but expensive ). If someone wins a car they can either sell it, pay the taxes and keep the balance or they can just get a loan for whatever the taxes will be, that’s not a bad deal.

  2. Taxes? In California you have to pay State tax and federal tax .(taxed twice)

    • Mayfair Magee says:

      If you don’t find the Trip(s) worth the Tax liability, simply don’t use the Travel Voucher(s). When you pay the Tax for the other Prizes, attach a note that you have deducted the Trip value (as reported by the Prize Administrator to the IRS) from your taxable base. Call the IRS for free consultation on how to properly document your Trip refusal (the IRS might want your unused Voucher).

  3. Saegan Anderson says:

    literally always i think about taxes when entering! and yeah i’m in California so extra taxes

  4. Can ANYONE tell me what the answer to 12/25/2015 is??

  5. This is considered a sweepstakes and therefore not eligible for California state tax. Game show prizes are different.

  6. Wanda huggins says:

    Do you know the punchline for 12-28-15?

  7. pueblowestmom says:

    I need the answer for 12/28/15 please! My 3yr old son walked right in front of the TV when it appeared on screen and I didn’t record the show. 🙁
    I’ll take my chances on the taxes 🙂

  8. Thank you so much for sharing!
    I appreciate you!!!
    Have a Happy New Year!!

  9. Was there a show for Ellen for Friday 1/1/16. I didn’t see anything for my area.

  10. Happy 2016! Does anyone know today’s answer (1/1/16)? I have Dish Network so there was only football and hockey on today.

    • Patricia L. Mullenax says:

      I did not see the show either – other New Year things going on, parades, football games. I’d like to know the answer, also.

      • Regarding your question, I am not seeing how you can go back more than a day to enter for past days or am I missing something? All I see when I go to the entry screen is just the current day’s classic joke options so I assume if you missed a day then past answers aren’t going to do you any good anyway. No?

  11. can anyone please tell me the punch line today Monday January 4th …I missed just as it was on screen turned head and gone

  12. I am waiting for today’s answer (Jan 4) because I got a phone call and missed it 🙁

    Anyone know the answer for Jan 4?

  13. Today’s punch line (Jan 4) is now posted above.

  14. Thank YOU!

  15. How would you know if you win?

    • I am wondering the same thing. I don’t see anything on their website indicating winners for this entry, just the original 12 days winners.
