dpoly1 after 25% federal taxes and 4% state taxes it will be  $107,210,000 No Pity!remember the cash option is $151 millions.

They only take 25% you are responsible to pay the remaining 10% to pay the 35% tax rate.

Look it up, the Federal Tax rate is 35% for that kind of money!!!!!!!!!

Someone help me here, I can't be the only person that knows that the Federal Tax Rate is 35%!

Yikes! No Pity!

    Lottery Post shown in background of Good Morning America, while speaking with a supposed big jackpots winner named Richard Lustig and these are the winning numbers he picked on tv for a Good Morning America journalist: was just shown 15 to 20 minutes ago about 7:15-7:20 am eastern time..

     

    7-20-32-45-46 (mega ball 28)

    ========================================

    7-20-32-45-46 (mega ball 28)

    If even 4 of those numbers hit Friday, it could be up setting to MegaMillions as those fortune cookie numbers were to PowerBall a year or so ago.

                    Yep, looks like everyone wants to ring in 2011 filthly rich. Actually it's a great way to ring in the new year for whoever the lucky person ends up to be.

                        I even spent more than $1 on this one & I am very frugal with my money!

                        Sun SmileyI will be in the sunshine when I get that EFT from the PA Lottery, I am hoping for at least $100 Million!

                          If you really want to play, take a road trip up to Georgia.  Ohioan use to drive to all the surrounding states for tickets before MegaMillions and PowerBall came to Ohio and once it was shown the neighboring state was making money that Ohio could have been making, the lottery commission sought to bring those games to Ohio.  One of the largest PB win went to a group of workers from Columbus, Ohio who traveled a hundred miles to Indiana for PB tickets regularly when the jackpots got large.

                           * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
