dividing winnings

Recommended Posts

Hi, want to get into some tournaments this year. How would any winnings be divided amongst the team. Not that I plan on winning anything, but you never know. Usually the captain has all the money invested in the boat and gear

Same formula for derbies?  Also, any allowance for taxes?

Yes. The boat owner (captain) would tell us his tax bracket after consulting with financial adviser and keep that amount from the winnings for taxes. The winnings are a lot less after taxes and expenses.

Agreed, provided all 3 guys pay an equal share to the tournament costs. Costs include entry, food, lodging, boat slip, etc.  In the past, we took winnings, paid all costs, and then divided by # people + 1 boat, assuming each paid an equal share in the entry fee (which was in essence paid in advanced so this cost was not taken off).

Expenses get split evenly among teammates. In the event you win money split the winnings evenly among teammates with the boat acting as a share.


IF you win over $600 you will most likely get 1099'd from the tournament entity. What I do is give everyone their share, and at the same time issue them a 1099 for that amount. This lowers your taxable income and lets everyone share the tax burden equally (although the captain will pay on two shares).


My advice to the captain is to discuss this prior to practice with them team so everyone is on the same page.

We split equal shares and if you got good buddies they take care of captain and boat. My team is great. We win split it evenly and they always give alot back back.
