your rate is 35%, mine is 25% buddy.

If you win a jackpot, you will pay 35%, pal. 

Unless you cheat on your taxes.

In which case there may be a Cabinet Position for you.

        Not until you've paid the utmost farthing.

        Seeking tax shelters to avoid government confiscation is now unpatriotic according to Obama and Reid.

        Ask Romney.

        We're supposed to be proud to give the government all they want of what's ours.

        And I know you wouldn't want to be unpatriotic.

              The fact we have to pay taxes on lottery winnings and gambling winnings in this country is disgusting. We are playing a game that is taxed at upwards of 50% to begin with. This backward type of thinking is why we are 15 trillion in the hole as a country. Instead of incentivizing people to play and to churn more handle it is an absolute money grab at every turn. Let us face it.  99.9% of people lose money gambling whether it be horses, casinos, or lotteries. But the goverment knows that most people are lazy and will not keep track of winnings and losses and will pay up. Just like many lotteries have these crazy bonus areas on scratch off tickets because they know some people will just throw tickets away thinking they lost.


              The smarter way to pay less on taxes is to pick up losing tickets at 7-11 or the track and write them off against your winnings if you are every lucky enough to hit a 10000 to one shot so many times like this guy did.  One day it might be me because I fire away at 1125 here in Illinois as it is my bday and it has never come up!

                  just like I thought.  got nothing to do in your little old cabin so start an arguement without any facts and start calling names. take your negativity and shove it like the furry tale rats you eat, old man.

                    I say buy 208 of them right away....... And don't forget to save your losing tickets for tax purposes.

                              It would be ironic if this guy was one of those people running around saying, "The rich need to pay their fair share."

                              I'd say there's a good possibility.  It's always "someone else" who should pay.
