IRS To Auction Off Seized Season Tickets



    If you find yourself with a few hundred-thousand dollars laying around, and kicking yourself over your decision to pass on those season tickets for the 2010 Dallas Cowboys season, the Internal Revenue Service may have just come to your rescue.

    At 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Federal Building on Alpha Road in Farmers Branch, the IRS will auction off a group of seized season tickets and seat licenses for six lower level seats at Cowboys Stadium. The bidding will start at around $185,000, and, according to Clay Sanford, a Dallas IRS representative, represents the first time in at least five years that a season ticket package has been auctioned in order to settle a debt.

    According to Cowboys’ spokesman Brett Daniels, per the Dallas Morning News, licenses for a given seat is worth $50,000--or $300,000 for the group of six.

    The entire package--10 home games and a parking pass--is worth $321,000. The winning bidder will have to pay the Cowboys an additional $70,000 in remaining dues and transfer fees. Which is rough, but you know, they’ll have some really, really sweet seats.
