The lottery office is always trying to find a reason not to pay out and i don't see anything wrong the lottery offices are greedy and crooks themeselves their will be alot of people that will claim their winnings in a trust. I know i would because i don't want or need to go public with my winnings i feel like all states should be anonymous.

I'm a new poster here so please treat me with kid gloves at first.

With that said...being anonymous is fine if one doesn't care to field the typical questions from a reporter, "How does it feel to be a winner?", "what are your plans?" (and my favorite) "will the win affect your life?". States do allow winners to beg off the publicity and pictures, Arizona being one of them. However, there is a Public Records law that would reveal the winners name. The general public won't know that you're the winner unless they make a Public Records request and the website will show "anonymous" as the winner if it shows up at all. But since the monies being paid are technically states monies (states money...state monies?), a record has to be maintained showing the recipients name, address, amount won and then the tax thing will be given to the appropiate agencies.

There has to be a paper trail. Total anonymity isn't going to happen.

    Welcome to Lottery Post, desert, and best of luck to you!

    Now, when can we take the kid gloves off?

      It's only a public record if the law says it is, and in states that allow anonymity that information isn't a public record. I believe there have been cases where the lottery didn't publicize the name of a winner, but since there wasn't a specific allowance to remain anonymous the information was released due to a lawful request.
