Win the lottery? Welcome to the 1%. Now here comes the taxman.
The odds of winning the record $1.4 billion jackpot in Saturday night's drawing are 1 in 292 million. Anyone who beats those odds has tremendous luck, and a colossal tax bill to look forward to.
Prize money = taxable income: Lottery winnings are taxed like income, and the IRS taxes the top income bracket 39.6%. The government will withhold 25% of that before the money ever gets to the winner. The rest has to be paid at tax time.

Well, turns out it would be best if we won big time, CC

Do You Live In These 9 Lucky Countries Where You Pay No Tax On Lottery Winnings?

These countries pay out a lump sum immediately, tax-free, to all lottery winners:

Australia
Canada
Finland
Germany
Ireland
Italy
Liechtenstein
New Zealand
United Kingdom.

What they advertise is what you get, so if it was 1.4 billion euros here in Finland it would be exactly the sum I receive. The lottery company pays the tax for you. I can even have it in cash, although I imagine that would take quite a few suitcases. 13.gif

I figure I'd get to keep a quarter of the total.
350 million would keep me in walking around money for a while.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Actually, you would keep 1/3 of the jackpot. This drawing will easily eclipse $1.5 billion. If you took home $500 million you could get an investment team and turn that into far more that the original $1.5 billion. All you need is to make more than the 3% interest the Lottery Commission will get you. That shouldn't be too difficult.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

I say we do that , and not Tax the share .

Just give each head of Household a share .

it would be more then 4 million

but , after everyone gets their share , NO TAX on the Gift .

I think that's a wonderful idea. Nobody would qualify for welfare anymore.

I just bought ONE ticket

I picked the 9 Ball for the power ball in Honor of Zakk Tull

if I win , I am going to hunt Zakk Down and Help that Man
buy him a Home and a brand new Macbook Pro laptop
and set up a trust fund for his bills

and get him the help- he needs for his Problem .

That's the first thing I can do .

after that

it's a ğkking free for all

Kritter Island comes to mind .
