    I've received awards with cash offsets for taxes*. It's an easy calculation.

    Assume tax withholding by the organization at 40% fed+state (as an example). Award is valued at $50K. Divide $50K by 0.6 to get $83,333 which will be the total award value added to your income. That extra $33,333 will be withheld as tax on both the $50K award and tax on the cash offset. So you get your $50K award and paid your taxes on it without having to cough up extra cash.

    * LOOK AT ME! I GOT AN AWARD!**

    Regards,
    Chris

    I understand that, but it's an unreasonable standard. Gold and diamonds aren't used to buy groceries and make mortgage payments for obvious reasons. There should be a category for provable gifts, which a Super Bowl ring assuredly is, apart from income .

    Taxes on the rings are required by law, so that was bound to be part of the story. What would be interesting to know is if Kraft offset this burden with a cash offset for the taxes or just left it up to the employees to deal with on their own.

    Regards,
    Chris

    True, bonuses and pay are taxable. Reimbursed expenses, however, are not.
