How about this smart winner, choosing to set up a trust in Texas.

This winner is already starting out on the right track.

I Agree! Congrats to (all of) the winner(s)/trustee(s) in the great state of Texas.

    So winners can claim anonymously in Texas?

    I don't know. I would hope that is the case.

           Yes you can use an Trustee , that's another way you don't have to show your face .

           Something to think about !!!!!

          Can you please show us where it says that  "they claimed anonymously" since I totally missed it. Did they avoid the initial 25% fed tax withholding?.

          Every lottery jackpot winner has the  25% Fed tax taken out before they see any of their money .There is absolutely NO WAY to avoid not paying it.

            Choosing to claim the prize through a Trust does NOT mean that people will not/ cannot find out who the winner is.Freedom of information is alive and well in Texas & out here in CA. If people want to dig- they will come up with the name of the winner.

              That good because if someone shows up at your door asking for a share of your lottery winnings you know they have stalked you and you may have the right to use deadly force to defend yourself.

                l don't know if one has permission to use " deadly Force" because of being stalked RJ-  l can just picture Paparazzi  bodies littered on sidewalks from Actors/ Actresses who would claim to having a valid reason for using DF because of being stalked. .

                  501 (c) in the tax law allows fed exemption. ie, churches would be an example.

                   

                  May this winner and its family enjoy the prosperity gained. !

                    Congrats to this Texas winner!!  Dance   And thank you to the Texas winner for showing us how to collect this the right way. Party

                     

                     

                    This is good to know these details here in Texas.. trust, trustee showing up, limited publicity. I knew about the limited publicity and claiming in a trust, but was unaware how initially anonymous it could be here. Anyone can search public records to come up with the beneficiaries of a trust. It's a dang good lawyer than can nest enough or the right entities to keep the true beneficiary's identity in the shadows.  I've definitely marked this down in my notes.

                       I Agree!- However I have no idea whether Churches play the lottery or not.Until they pull it off, EVERY winner will have 25% Fed Taxes taken out TGG.

                        I Agree! with your last piece of " This is good news Piaceri". l intend to take the same route should l be fortunate to win..

                         Party to the Texas Winner as well.

                         

                         

                        This is from the Ca-lottery Handbook.

                        ? If you are concerned about people trying to contact you, consider changing your cell and home phone numbers or allow your voicemail to pick up calls for a few days.

                        ? Interview at least three licensed attorneys and select the one you feel most comfortable with. An attorney can help protect you and your assets.

                        ? Interview several Certified Public Accountants. Remember, you will have to pay taxes on your win. An accountant can make sure your taxes are in order year after year.

                        ? If you plan to invest your money, do it wisely. You may consider the services of a qualified investment planner. Again, interview at least three and select the one you are most comfortable with.

                        ? You may want to hire an attorney, an accountant and an investment planner from three different firms. You want them to act independently from one another.

                        ? Remember—you are the boss. They work for you!

                        ? You will receive many offers to donate, invest or downright give away your money. Always consult your expert professionals.

                        ? Spending fast and furious will only leave you fast and furiously broke. Be careful with your newfound wealth!

                        ? There will be immediate interest in your story. History tells us the media will likely attempt to contact you. Their efforts are made easier in this day of internet search engines. With that in mind, we urge you to consider taking part in a news conference. We’ll take the headache away by doing the planning for you. Winners have been better able to satisfy these media requests in one shot and get on with their lives.

                        ? According to public disclosure laws, your name is public record. The name and location of the retailer who sold the winning ticket, the date you won, whether your numbers were a Quick Pick® or your own numbers and the amount of your winnings are also matters of public record and are subject to disclosure.

                        ? You can form a trust prior to claiming your prize, but understand that your name is still Public and reportable.

                        People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

                          Anyone ?
