Shotgun raffle

If you've always wanted to own a high-end custom shotgun, this is your chance.

The Ruffed Grouse Society is raffling a "Baby Frame" Model 21 28-gauge, side-by-side shotgun made by Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Co. It features 28-inch barrels, choked-improved cylinder and modified with two beads, a straight English stock crafted from fancy AAA feathercrotch walnut to a checkered butt and a 14 1/2-inch LOP. The beavertail fore-end has an ebony insert in the tip. It has a single selective trigger, and the RGS logo is hand-engraved in real gold on the bottom of the receiver. It's valued at $32,000.

Only 1,500 tickets will be sold. They cost $100 and can be ordered by calling 1-888-564-6747. The drawing will be held June 30.

$1920 in sales tax. The wife would not go for that.
I've never heard of paying sales tax on something won in an auction. Is that a standard practice once you reach a set value? I've heard of paying the IRS income tax on certain things because it is considered a gambling winfall but not sales tax. I think the income tax for gambling earnings is somewhere around 30-40%.
