I am a professional golfer.

I was playing in a golf tournament and I had a hole in one and won a Car.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

Prize money to a professional golfer is regarded as earned income. The fact you sold the car to your father makes no differnce.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me before you rate my service – I’ll be happy to respond.

I am aware that prize money to a professional golfer is taxable income. I have been paying golf and paying Tax for 10+ years on my tournament earnings...I will compete in 18,36,54 & 72 hole tournaments FOR prize money....

The car was not from 'tournament' winnings.

It was from a one off 'prize' on one particular hole.... That 'prize' money I won did not get added to my 'tournament' winnings that week....?

Thank you for your response.

If it was not part of a tournament and you took part in a one off event with other participants, professional or otherwise, then this winning would be non taxable as it is not work related as such.

You have converted this into cas and the fact itis sold to your father is irrevelant then.

I hope this is helpful. and 2 other Tax Specialists are ready to help you
