I wonder if the people that pay the tax on their winnings get a tax refund when it's tax time?   beaudad

Sound like good people, good for them. And with one ticket, I bet people who spend a load on each drawing would be upset.


Must be nice. Thats why I atleast bet atleast $1 for each powerball and mega millions drawing. I know somebody has to win and it might be me.

She obviously hasn't been told how stupid it is to play Quick Picks.

Poor soul, she's probably too high strung.

Congratulations four sharring Powerball jackpot, lump-sum winners!!!  Woo hoo, after paying the additional 34.9% federal (no state taxes, lucky, lucky!) taxes that leaves apx. $25.3 million dollars for you to share (probably 1/4th each)!

Also, it is great that of the four faithful player winners that only Alexandra needs to quit her commitment to an employer.  Yep, an apx. $6,347,350 NET, each is a wonderful sum of monies to thrill in for decades!

The tax is a killer. Too high. Other than that, congrats to the winner!!

In response to beaudad

Typically the lotto officials will initially deduct about 25% or more of the lotto winnings.  The lotto winner will then be required to pay the rest come tax time.  So yes, there usually is a hefty tax bill the lotto winner must pay on or before next April 15.

In response to Genome

It would be nice if I could buy Powerball lotto tickets when the jackpot is above $200M.  Unfortunately, because I'm in California, I am unable to.
