Thanks. I did not know that! I assumed I just paid VA and federal taxes. So I understand then if you buy a ticket in DC (non resident), I have to pay the difference in the state tax rate (5% VA...DC is 8%)...so my "surcharge" is 3% more!  I will try to stick to buying tickets in Virginia now.

If you buy a ticket in one tax jurisdiction and in another you can always expect to pay the higher rate.  The state that sells the ticket is entitled to income tax, because it''s income from that state. Your state of resdidence is entitled to income tax because you live there. Buying a ticket in a place with a lower tax rate isn't a problem, but you should have a really good reason if you buy in a state with a higher tax rate.

    Careful,your jealousy is showing.

     No, it's not a jealousy. He really DID sounded like a unrefined man. I got sick of him when I heard him say that he gave his granddaughter thousands of dollars for allowance every week. Smart guys don't do that.

      Oh, we all know you'll keep coming back, Princess. Afterall it's free and you're a lib and libs love free stuff because you're all cheapskates. So kindly tell us something we don't know now. Your cheap ass wouldn't be here if you had to part with a dollar. If there's one place you'll never be, it's somewhere you actually have to pay to get in.  You must be a real hit with the ladies, scrooge.

      And I ain't never run anybody off here but I'd end your tenure in one second flat if I was runnin' the show just for what you said about our Constitution, punk.

      Fact of the matter, Princess, is that calling our Constitution and Bill of Rights "pap and nonsense" might be considered slick in your limp-wristed democrat circles up there in Ohio, but waltz yer pansy-ass down here to east Tennessee and it'll get yer teeth kicked in.

      Believe that.

      Would that be the Tennessee waltz? Sounds like fun! Well, you have a good weekend and keep on smilin'...

             No, the interview was commenced AFTER his granddaughter died of overdose, which was an indirect result of lottery winning.

              Jack was already a MILLIONAIRE before he won the PB jackpot.  True no ones how they would react, but I'm guessing the PB stole his brains because he didn't go wild with the millions he made himself.

                One of these states will win the powerball..idaho, washington state, iowa, west virginia, south dakota, north dakota, maine, new hampshire, maine, oregon, nebraska, wyoming, vermont. 300 million is a lot of money to fall into the hands of the wrong demographic. If it doesn't hit in one of those states..it will hit in a store that caters to certain demographics.

                Today's "Tin Hat" award goes to you.

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                     Actually I have thought about that. But there's a possibility that all the lottery winners are tracked and watched over by the government, just in case that the money went to 'an undesirable element of the society.'.

                     

                     A few days ago I joked about a winner buying a rogue nuke. But...it may not be a laughing matter. There are millions of people in good ol' America who are willing to obtain and use the bomb for whatever reasons. And as a lottery player I don't want that kind of stigma.

                      Sadly, it was not sold in one of those states.

                      But I was wondering if a Rhode Island supermarket fits the profile of "a store that caters to certain demographics", according to your prediction.  Just curious.

                        I don't think they have a lot of minorities in Rhode island.a least I didn't see any when I visited.

                          So what are you saying?  Does that have something to do with "certain demographics"?  Does it mean those "certain demographics" were "selected by the lottery" or not?

                          (Lest anyone thinks I am serious, I say all this with heavy sarcasm, as the whole thing is beyond ridiculous.)

                            could be. I 'm not that nieve to beleive that the lottery commission doesn't have some hand as to when a jackpot is hit. do you think the casinos aren't rigged to keep u to dising in quarters. some believe the lottery isnt rigged somehow and some do.like I said before. I put the lottery and casinos in the same barrell with the carnival games,as far as being rigged or not.that's just my take on it. not trying to convert anyone.

                              As all lotteries in the US are monitored by third party independent accounting firms, which have no connection or affiliation with any state run lottery or government sector; I suspect  that the carnival clowns must be the one's responsible for the complexity of the deceit, smoke and mirrors act that is being pulled off in front of the hundred's of millions of American's in our country every day.

                              Wow kyok........you are in a carnival barrel of your own league.  Jester Laugh But because we encourage free speech and non censorship.....please continue to

                              erode what little credibility you have left.    Leaving
