Hi, I am sorry but this does not sound like it is real. If you give me some additional information I can look into it further for you. How did you find out that you won the contest? What is the name of the organization? How did they contact you?

What part of Maine are you from? I have several relatives in the Portland area and in Waterville.

You can request an income transcript from the IRS. Here is a link to request a transcript. https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

The income transcript information for 2016 would not be updated until May of next year. The IRS general number is *****

I would not pay any money to get a prize.
