After Tax Cash JP amount

Think's avatar - lightbulb

Here is a quick way to ballpark how much cash you would get from a Huge Jackpot.

You take the top Fed rate which is 35% and add it to the top rate in your state

(if lottery money is taxable).  In Michigan that is 3.9%.  So that would be 38.9% in

taxes and 61.1% for you.

You then take the Cash jackpot amount and multiply it by that .611 and that is around what you will net.


Just because the state only withholds so much, that does not magically mean that you dont owe the rest!


So, in Michigan, you would get  about 182,567,680* 0.611= $111,548,852 net


I also look in NJ for a ball park figure of around 40% of the gross jackpot for after tax, cash option.


I figure the cash option is about 60% of the annuity option, multiplied bt 65% net for a total of around 39%
