:laugh: Yup, we're getting to year end!

I received an affy today for a win. Have 14 days to return it. Now since it's the 23rd I'm not going to get the prize until 2007. It's not a huge win, so while I have to supply my ss number, not sure whether I'll get a 1099 for it, as it's under that $600 marker.
So for my own peace of mind, do I claim it on 2006 taxes or 2007 taxes? (Assuming I never receive a 1099 for it?)

Thanks y'all it's been a good year!

I'm not an expert, but I believe I have heard that if you receive the prize in 2007, that is when you claim it.

If you receive your prize in 2007, then you report it in 2008 when you do you 2007 tax return.
