California did better than Powerplay winners this time around!

 

Just found two regular purchased tickets with #12 on them, each one worth $12 added to my big loss of $36 on-line so up to $60 in winnings.  Better than nothing I suppose.

The State of Wisconsin will collect its 7.65% state tax of $36,482,850 if the winner(s) take the lump sum cash value.

The IRS will collect up to 37%. That comes to $176,453,000

After taxes, the ticket holder will keep about $264 mil

Isn't it funny that the draw numbers are out within 5 minutes after being drawn on mobile devices.

Why exactly would I wait before publishing the results?  That would be rather strange.

The winner/s have 180 days to claim. Should the winner/s get their ducks all lined up before claiming? Can they remain in hiding until claiming? Congratulations to whoever won!!Party

When I lived in Ohio I'd have no problem agreeing that a Great Lake state would win the PB jackpot as would anyone living in any of the 8 great lake states that includes New York. Are the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers considered "a large body of water"?

If you have to squint to see the other side, probably. We not talking Olympic size swimming pools.

and 1 or 2 for mom. just odd 1 person when 100 + in MANY STATES can win at least FOUR #s with pb or mega ball, and or five numbers and still

IRS/GOV shall have PLENTY left over,Smiley

so i think dad has a point.

Congrats to the ONE winner.

TheMeatman2005,
I sure hope so, I'm not getting any younger.
Just one million would do it for me (realizing that taxes woud be taken out).

This drawing could have had 700+  one-million dollar winners.
So, 700+ people might have bought a decent house, and car.

So.... Here's what I want to know....

Can the winner in WI claim through a Trust or LLC...meaning: the Name of the Trust or LLC is put on the Back of the Ticket?

I live in a non-anon state, and I am concerned about that particular rule, when it comes to claiming. 

If their Identity is spread out by the Lottery (as per the rules they put down to insure that "Real People REALLY DO WIN") 
then, that winner is basically a target by all the wolves and yahoos out there.

I've harped on this before.....and I know that most folks agree with me, despite saying in reply...

"Well....they should have went to an anon state to purchase that ticket!"
or
"If they didn't want to be exposed, they better not play."
or
"what's the problem? Just grin and bear it....it'll be *alriiiiiiiiiight*"

Is the WI winner basically S-O-L when it comes to protecting their identity when claiming?

Because here's what I would do in that winner's situation

Get that Lawyer from New York (I think his name is Joshua Something, or if you can't get him, get a lawyer who will work for a flat rate, and do this.
----> Form 2 trusts, (or get two aged Shelf Trusts) where one collapes into the other. and get two Shelf Corp's
-----> Trust 1 is a receiving trust (lottery-office facing) that collects the money (minus taxes) (Trustee has to be a Shelf Corp, Beneficiary has to be the Bridge Trust)
-----> Trust 2 is the bridge trust (Receiving Trust Facing) (trustee has to be 2nd shelf corp, beneficiary has to be 1st shelf corp) 
and this bridge trust collapses into the 1st shelf corp.

But I'm not sure...Can a Beneficiary on the bridge trust, be trustee on the receiving trust?  I don't know....

But is this thinking all for naught, and the winner is SOL when it comes to protecting their identity from the public?

Maybe in WI it is.

I have been working on a chart for all the states.

 

Here is what I have for Wisconsin.

 

Not anonymous/cannot be claimed by other entities. "The original winning ticket must be signed by a single human being. For-profit and non-profit entities, trusts, and other non-human beings are not eligible to play or claim a prize." Source: https://wilottery.com/claimprize.aspx

 

So trusts are not a option regardless of the counsel you hire.

I haven’t decided if I will play or not. Perhaps I should. Call me daffy duck it’s mine.
