Dream Home Owner Still Owes Uncle Sam

HGTV Dream Home Owner Don Cruz says he's paid off his state taxes in his home state of Illinois, but he still owes the federal government $672,000. Cruz, his wife and son moved in to the Dream Home last April. He anticipated paying taxes on 1.5 million dollars in winnings. But when he received his 1099's, the government said he earned closer to 2 million. The family first told KLTV 7 in February, that they were selling the home. Cruz has since received two bids which will remain anonymous. Cruz says he's selling the home for 5.5 million dollars, or to the highest bidder.
