    The first thing she should do, is find the individual that was kind enough to let her ahead of the line, and give that person 10%. Afterall, chivalry is not dead, at least not yet.

    I would give the clerk something too if i knew they were a decent person. He or she pressed the button at the right time.

      Of course she will still owe the balance of her tax debt.

          What the clerk did was a matter of daily routine, NOT an act of kindness. The clerk gets nothing.

            But I digress...inititally, taxes of 25% are withheld...$94,724,195,21 :(

            And on April 15, 2014...additional taxes of $55,318,930.00 will be due :( 

            So in the end, Gloria and her family will actually recieve a grand total of $228,853,655.63 :) Hurray!

            All in all...federal taxes are $150,043,125.21 :(

            But, I doubt Gloria and her family will complain.

            Of course...with any charitable donations, her tax burden would decrease! 

            Also, of the $55million + due next year, she could still earn monies Hyper off of that 'till the time comes to write that massive check. 

            I know her attorney and financial advisors will be happy to do that for her :)

            One other note...of the massive $150million + in taxes that will be going to the federal govenment, Gloria's taxes will only fund about 34 minutes of total spending :(

                I think a depreciating asset may decrease the tax burden? What do you think?

                      Whittaker, the other record PB winner did that for a waitress that served him coffee every morning on his way to work and she complained about having to pay higher real estate taxes.

                          The NY Post is reporting today that this is the house that Ms. Mackenzie lives in near Tampa:

                          Ms. Mackenzie's house

                          The article says she arrived at the lottery office in a silver Ford Focus (year of car not mentioned).

                          silver ford focus

                          File photo not her actual car.

                            I'd like to know why the Florida lottery felt compelled to notify the media before they even finished the paperwork.

                            The story says they walked right in without calling ahead and obviously had been working on getting everything they needed because they were organized and had everything to complete the paperwork.

                            So they walked out a couple hours later and were bombarded by media?  The lottery had to have called them.  Seems they could have waited till after the final T was crossed and the poor woman had left to annouce her name.

                            A pretty sleazy move on the part of the Florida lottery. They couldn't get her to attend the optional press conference, so they told the media what day she would be at the lottery office to fill out paper work, so the media can snap photos of her on the way to her car.

                            I can see other state lotteries doing this same tactic. If you ever win big and they tell you to come to the office to fill out paper work, be sure to bring a ski mask for the long walk back to your car.

                            .

                              This was probably the Florida Lottery's attempt at more publicity.  They had not even left the offices, and there was a lot of media already.  That isn't cool. But, to be fair, I think there was media camped out on the likely chance that the winner would come there to claim it.  So, she probably should of had a disguise so her face would not be all over the news and internet.  Good luck, Gloria!
