Reality shows on TV have a big draw on the public. One of the most popular is Extreme Makeover. Each week, viewers are drawn to families, usually with extreme challenges in life, that receive the gift of a brand new home. Generally, the new home is built on the original site with amazing features in the period of one week. It’s the ultimate fantasy and has many sending in, hoping they’ll be the next winner. However, winners beware because nothing comes for free and there are tax problems related to Extreme Makeover, something the program doesn’t tell viewers. When Extreme Makeover creates a brand new home that is usually much larger, with many improvements inside and out, you can guarantee that there is going to be a new tax assessment. The families that are chosen as recipients usually are experiencing great financial hardship. Giving them a big hike in their tax bill could be devastating, resulting in a family that can’t sustain the taxes on the dream home that was tailored to their desires and interests. That as well as increased energy costs in a bigger space could be a problem. Extreme Makeover needs to truly make their gift work.
