Winning a car on the Price is Right can cost you nearly half of what it’s worth. According to a 2013 winner of a $19,652 car, she ended up shelling out $9,000 in federal, state, and sales taxes. On top of that, the sales tax (over $2k in this case) must be paid before taking possession of the car, which has to be claimed within 10 days of it becoming available. Source
