Either way I'm glad this guy got some money but it is naive to think people are necessarily rewarded for hard work in this economy. Of course hard work helps but millions of people work hard their entire lives and die completely destitute. Other people hardly work at all and contribute very little and end up billionaires.


He is going to receive $270,451 as of this morning. That does put him in the top 1% of wage earners in the USA for 2015. He'll be owing some big time taxes this year.

It's over $291,635 now with 11,113 people contributing. Now that is the power of Crowd Funding.

Are these not gifts? If so he won't have to pay a dime in taxes on it.

I'm not sure how the IRS is going to look at it. He's going to need an accountant. I do know that when the Chevrolet dealer and the Honda dealer were offering him a vehicle, they said that he'd have to pay taxes on them.
