      They make enough money on the front side,no need to squeeze the back side with taxes.People that win are going to spend it usually in there local economy,and the merry go-around turns.

        Simply put, NJ Lottery dropped the ball. They can try to shift the blame all they want. Yeah right, blame it on the Zombies.

        Maybe the same thing is going on in other States too: It just hasn't been detected and exposed there Yet!

            If your prize is over $599.50, you can claim it at your New Jersey Lottery Retailer or at New Jersey Lottery Headquarters. 

            I never won over $599.50 in NJ so I don't know if they pay cash on the spot for tickets over that and under $5000, but I was paid the same day in cash in Michigan, Ohio, PA, WVA, and KY. The people using phoney SS numbers probably have a fake picture ID to go along with it and probably easier to fool the people at lottery headquarters than a savvy clerk.

            "Most states withhold the maximum tax, and federal withholdings will be 30%. In the majority of cases they'll already have what the person owes in taxes."

            Which state withholds Federal or state taxes on prizes under $5000?

            Good point Stack.....we do not in Texas,nor was it done in Florida when I was there. Unless you have to provide a SS card(in your respective state) with your ID to claim the $600 - $5000 range(which we do not in Texas if you produce a valid drivers license or a few other types of ID). We only have to LIST a SS# on the claim form for any prize range of $25.00 or more.....Could we have a "failure to pay" in this winning range ? possibly if all agencies are not linked to a common point with names and SS #'s.....
            With the way the article is written, seems like good ole NJ hasn't set up their lottery commission to link up with ALL the required agencies for which money is/could be owed to.

              Funny also how many dead folks kept 'receiving' their pensions every month here in Greece... I reckon it has to do something with the 'Walking Dead'... no other explanation...

                Maybe all lotteries should be banned in NJ.

                  I Agree!

                  Perhaps it's time the greedy government, who produce nothing,  take the good example of other world authorities and just let the hard working men & women, who win Disney this once in a lifetime, have all their winnings - imagine  how that would increase participating tkx sales

                  Remember the classic story of the reapers?

                  Maybe government should spend their time chasing the fraudulent underground food stamps & systematic looting of the public trust & treasury by welfare cheats $$$

                    You are absolutely correct. They all have skull and bones in their closets to varying degrees. Sooner or later, those skeletons start getting uneasy and start popping their bony heads out of the closets, to the detriment of the lottery gods. Sometimes the lottery gods don't give a rats ass about the controversies generated by these incidents, so far as they are making good money. We love to have those skeletons in the closets exposed.

                      I do not attempt cash 4 life,as i watch very closely per week to see whose winning.

                      Many i've seen in the store literally standing there bemoaning insofar as, "why  no winner$"for literally MONTHS!

                      SMH. i think the last cash 4 so called "life"was four to five months or longer ago,so not worth it...GLAD I DON'T PLAY.

                      ---

                       

                      i think i attempted 1x.or 2 maximum.Not worth it.I think the game shall cease soon enough just like horrid Monopoly.
