Maryland non-residents (winners are from Pa.) would pay 7.5% state tax, not great but better than Maryland residents (9.25%)

You're right about that.  Here is the Jackpot Analysis for that drawing:  http://www.usamega.com/powerball-jackpot.asp?d=12/24/2011

    THE ONLY way for PA a resident to hit the Powerball......I can only remember that the Jackpot hit once in PA.......I could be wrong, but its not often enough.

    I use to go to Delaware from PA to buy my tickets.

          If I lived anywhere close to Delaware, I'd always buy my tickets in Delaware. Why? because they allow you to remain completely anonymous and their taxes are the same as majority of the other states both for locals and out of state players.

          hmmm are there jobs in Delaware?Big Smile

              John,I don't think that's an actual ticket.I think that is just a store print out of the winning numbers.An actual ticket would NOT say "winnings numbers" on it.Just my opinion,I could be wrong.

                  too bad we couldn't get these numbers day before the draw Bed

                        Congratulations to the lucky winners.

                        I use to frequently go over to Pa and De to purchase Powerball tickets.

                        Now I also like to purchase MegaMillion tickets in other States because of the poor winning habits Maryland has in with Mega.

                        Come on Jackpot!!!

                          Congratulations to this Powerball jackpot winner. I hope this is the last Powerball jackpot winner before it goes to $2 per draw.

                            We have had quite a few Powerball winners here, but it had been a long time until recently. Good luck to all, but I have the next one!  :$

                              dpoly1, I really would be pleased if you won! You have been a wonderful advocate for PA players to hit it big! I'm just trying to get the second tier prize payout as its so far and few that hit that!

                              Not a fan of MD for its tax structure, I stopped playing there when they nailed their own tax paying residents and then turned around and nailed anyone traveling there to play. They are just creating deterrents for playing.  Its sad when its the Players who PAY for the entire games to exist to be penalized all in the name of "TAX".

                              I'd be MORE SICK then happy if I claimed that kind of jackpot only to have half of it taken away...

                               Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014
