Guests who took home gift-packed bags from yesterday’s Academy Awards ceremony may have to pay $30,000 in taxes on their new acquisitions.
The bags, which included a $7000 Victoria’s Secret underwear set and a coupon for LASIK surgery, are worth approximately $100,000 each.
And unfortunately for the celebrities present, the United States Inland Revenue Service has declared that the bags given to Oscar attendees count as taxable income.
IRS commissioner Mark Everson quips, “We want to make sure the stars ‘walk the line’ when it comes to these goody bags.”
