According to the jackpot analysis I linked above, if one person wins it in georgia, and they take the cash option, their net payout will be almost 306 million dollars.

First, I'd move from CO to a state with no income tax before claiming my winnings, and one which would also let me pick up my prize anonymously. Then follow the jackpot instructions thread posted previously.

Well, the second house in our family was struck by lighting yesterday. Mom's house three years ago, brother's yesterday. 

So lightning and/or terrible luck runs in our family. 

Maybe I'll get a ticket.

Yep.  Fuck it, someone has to win, so might as well give it a go.  $310,000,000 after taxes ain't exactly chump change.

If you look at the info it has federal tax of 25%...that is the amount they automatically takeout, but unless you have tons and tons of deductions, you will come up with a big tax bill at the end of the year.  You need to be thinking along the lines of 39% federal tax rate.

Yeah, I'll go ahead and pay the $2 "stupid tax".




Lemme axe a querstion:

Lets say one lives in FL.  And that person wins via a ticket purchased in a state income tax state, does the winner owe the state of which he is not a resident and is not currently working in "their" cut (state income tax)?

After holding back the extra 14% for the rest of the federal tax.....that's still over 260 mill free and clear.

I could get by on that.

I was at the counter spending $20 on tickets when the lottery sign changed to 700 million - and my wife got an iPhone news flash of the same.

I'm 40, give me the $305MM and I'll call it even.

Compound for me and the family on a lake somewhere, very large main house custom built to my specs, with some nice other houses, and like a 50 car fully functional garage I'm talking paint booth, lifts/racks, rotisseries ect fully functioning auto shop (I'm a ASE Master Tech both mechanical and paint and body so there are many strange and glorious creations I wouldn't mind doing if I had the means), large Olympic sized pool, dock on the lake for boats ect, and 1000 yard range.

Correct.  The ticket has to be claimed in the state it was bought in.  So if you bought the winning ticket already, you done fucked up.  Might as well toss it in the trash.

If you take the annuity, can you will payments to someone else in case you die.

I know you're suppressed you take the cash payout but damn, I'd miss out on $180M by taking cash.  What makes it worth it?  I could live of off $16M a year just fine.

From the notes at the bottom:


9. If you win the jackpot, consult a good accountant and tax attorney for ways to minimize your tax liability.  Consider donating a substantial amount to the owner of this Web site, because he gave you such great advice when you needed it most.

Doesn't make sense to buy more than one ticket.

With zero tickets, you have zero chance of winning.
With 1 ticket, you have a 1 in 87 bajillion chance.  A long shot, but significantly better odds than zero.
With 20 tickets, you have a 20 in 87 bajillion chance.  A statistically insignificant difference from a 1 in 87 bajillion chance.

If you invest most of the money it will be more than the annuity.  Hell, just buying a mansion will appreciate in value.

The lottery analysis above shows a 25% Fed Tax...is that correct (?Capital Gains? tax) vs. the highest income tax bracket (39.6%)...

(And PA just recently started taxing lottery winnings as income at the 3.09% rate)....

Edited...just looked it up....they'll withhold 25%, but the rest (taxed as income) is paid at tax time...at the 39.6% rate.....so you better plan for it before you burn bonfires of money at the hookers and blow party.....

You would be advised to consult an attorney and a CPA before claiming any winnings.
I'd have to imagine forming a trust or corporation to claim the winnings is the way to go.
Your family could be officers in the corporation so if someone dies there shouldn't be any hitches.
