    America's favorite lottery is played in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Play Powerball, It's America's Game! www.powerball.com

    Wondering which state will be the first lucky winner of 2015? Wonder how many states have never won a Jackpot yet in all the years playing? excluding Nevada, Utah, Alabama and Mississippi don't even play powerball. Gambling States I guess why they don't play!

      Does anyone no what all taxes owe... is it just federal for 39.6%. my state of ohio for 4% to 5.33%... is there your local city tax too or just them two taxes n not city, medicare, and oasdi as well

      Yes, mrlottojackpot, your research is correct.  Some folks may also owe that "city/municipal tax rate" and all residents owe the 'highest tax bracket charged Medicare tax rate' (which I think is apx. 4%); which you also wrote of. 

      Good preparations you've been making! Cheers

          Great numbers here,i've utilize a few of these over the years

          (16,22, and the 51,50 etc.)

          ---

          but tonight?Cheers

          i also will be electing:

          13,16,17,27,35 and mi Power# >>>>6

          17,3,5,1,29 and mi Power# >>>>>39

          21,22,27,51,and 50 and mi Power# >>>>18

          44,41,25,28,11 and mi Power #>>>>>>>26

          26,51,16,12,22,and mi Power#>>>>>>7

           

          Good luck to you all!

           

          There definitely should be a few "dozen winners,when over 100 million,and over

          like  100 to 200 or more  winners when over 200 million+500 million etc.al.,

           

          because that is more fair and not just "1" or 2.

          That is outlandish.

          SmileMi parents only choosing quick pick.

          so i might grab a few quick pick too.

          Even 4 numbers or five is good,or 4 with the power ball of course

          adios!

                go read the federal tax form the default tax they remove off the top is 25% not 39%. i did not say you would not owe the other 14% later when you file at end of year.

                They take 25% off top first to make sure you cant spend it all without getting there cut first. non-usa residents pay 30% off top plus state. after that you full tax bill of ur 39.6% is due because you will def make more than $406,751 for single tax fillers

                  I have been playing since i was 19 and have a good plan for diff size jackpots and always have a good idea on total taxes due so i know what i can spend and not owe anything besides sales tax on all my homes and lamborghini's. and i thought medicare tops is almost $8,000 no matter if you make a million or a billion. was just unsure if city and others get a cut to

                      The only reason i can think of as to why they don't pull the whole 39.6% (capital gains rate) is so you can do things for write offs like charitable donations etc.

                        Has to be to upsell,and i don't like that.

                         

                        I got mine all chosen already...Cheersi've chose mi numero's,but will add few quick pick.

                        Or not sure,i might not even bother,lol then again i most likely buy a few definite quick picks later.

                        it should be mandated,that  multiple winners, i.e, over "100 mill.. that should be law imho! LOL

                        seriously.

                         

                        why only 1,that is SO UNFAIR,to many i see why most get mad over it...

                        or definitely over 200 million to up to 1 billion HUNDREDS OF WINNERS,that is only fair,maybe 1 day it will change.

                              This is not news. It is nothing more than a ploy to get a lot of people spun up over nothing. Only Uncle Sam, the eventual winning ticket holder(s), and their advisors care about the jackpot amount. I play the same whether it is $40 million or $500 million. I just give myself a chance every drawing.

                              I heard that! The only winners for sure is OLD Uncle Sam! They going to get theirs. I play every drawing also! weather it's 40 million or not! A 2 dollar ticket and a dream of winning! I hope there will be multiple winners! How can any one person manage that much money! Mind boggling to even think about that much! Would like to be the winner or one of the multiple winners. Wonder how many multiple winners there could be? I only remember 3 at one time! Could there be 4, 5 or even 10 multiple winners? Good Luck everyone!
