On the season premiere of the 25th season of her talk show, Oprah announced to her entire audience that she was taking them all to Australia. Better yet, Oprah has also made it clear that she’ll be picking up the tab on the taxes too.
According to TMZ, the last time Oprah gave away something huge—a car for everyone in her audience—it wasn’t such a great experience, as the “lucky” audience members got slapped with up to $7,000 in gift taxes.
TMZ also spoke to Larry Edema, one of the lucky audience members going to Australia, who said that a certified public accountant was at the taping of Oprah and was also told that all of the taxes for the Australia trip will be “handled by the Oprah show.”
All we can say is that these people are extremely lucky.
