Florida residents who travel to Georgia to get their MM tickets would owe the state of Georgia almost $16 million dollars if they were lucky enough to have purchased the sole winning ticket.

The Federal tax liability at the top rate of 35% would be almost $90 million but they are being nice by only taking out 25% initially($63 million). Talk about paying your fair shareDisapprove

    This is the time I wish I lived in Delaware where complete anonymity is legal. I have promised you the next JP is headed to good old Massachusetts after CT then RI had their chances. MA lottery would never dream of anonymous payout. They would splash your info at every intersection in the commonwealth. Oh well, I'll just move out of the country.

    That money's gone fo ever

        Willing to bet the jackpot will be over $400 million by Tuesday night. The last time MM was this high it jump roughly $60 million in the days leading up to the drawing.

        If MM hits $420 million, we could be looking at a cash value of over $300,000,000 Hyper

            I've got a crock pot full of pulled chicken cooking up... I'm thinking to add some beans to some and make some chicken chili. But no lima beans. Adding beans in chili is sacrilege here in Texas, but chicken chili you can get away with it.  That does it, chicken chili for dinner it is.

                            If it was to make it to 4/20 it would probably be over 1 billion! Nice bit of monery!
