Oh yea, they're gonna hear from me. Wink You better believe that.

I live 28 miles from the Oklahoma border, and if they take my PB away, I'll drive down there twice a week and buy my tickets, and OK can reap the rewards!

      one good idsea came from this thread. how about taxing pollitical parties on donations,. sure leave it a tax deduction for donors, hehe but tax the parties. i like that a lot, just like a business.


      her in australia we pat 1/11th of the ticket cost upfront when we buy, the winner pays no tax on the win, the losers cover that for them.

      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

        "the winner pays no tax on the win, the losers cover that for them."

        That's why I don't understand people complaining so much about paying taxes on lottery prizes. The vast majority of people spend far more on tickets then they get back. Why exactly would you want to pay the taxes for the very few people who do win multi-million dollar prizes?

        As far as state legislators wanting to collect sales tax on lottery tickets, maybe somebody should explain the whole concept of the lottery to them. It seems simple enough to me, but I guess too many of them can't figure it out. The lottery is already designed to make money for the state, and it does that when the state keeps the first 50 cents of every dollar spent on lottery tickets. If that 50% isn't enough they can always change the prize structure, and see how that works out for them.
