        $30, Just not that brave.

        can't remember last time I even played a scratcher.

          I was wondering how much money does Lacey Katona get after taxes are taken out, if she takes the cash option? I know there is a Federal tax on the $5 million win, but don't know if there is a New Jersey lottery state tax. Lacey says she will continue on her job. If I won $5 million on a state lottery, I wouldn't hesitate about quitting my job.

            Jersey taxes lottery wins @ 10.8% the highest in the nation.

            If I won I wouldn't hesitate to move to another state,

            I'd still have to pay the 10.8 but that would be the last time.

              So what!  Health care is required, if you don't have it you will get fined,  at I believe 1 or 2 percent of your income.  Think about that instead of ignorantly assuming it is a rant!

              Excellent point, pickone4me!  Hopefully, this big jackpot winner had already gotten mandatory medical insurance; so no fine of 2% of annual income!  [You're accurately thinking of last year's fine of 1% or $95/month that no medical insurance was in effect -- whichever is greater.]  Kudos!

                Glad to know this as it does affect a family when budgeting. It's my understanding that the percent penalty increases each year from 1%, 2%, 3%, 4% and so on.

                So it is a concern overall. 

                The Winner seems wise to keep her objective goals private. The less said to the public the better.

                May her family enjoy some quality time on adventures!

                  SWEETEST part is when she is so down to earth a regular woman she go,'Oh i have to cut the LOTTERY $ CONFERENCE SHORT,

                  BECAUSE,"I have to get to my retail mgr.job" hee  hee!!!LOL how REAL is that? She said it then the lottery lady confirm she really did say that!!!

                  -

                  She told us local folks here same city,town,county on the news

                  she intend to keep her job.I wouldn't...However,good to see she will. IF REALLY TRUE...

                  She seem so nice on the news.

                   

                  Our familia is in this town

                  and few towns over.

                   

                  This little suburban 85% residential town is a great thing,has had winners also with other big games,and jersey cash et.al,

                   

                  this store we go to week-by-week,nicest people!

                  Only 1/2 of block away from here we live as other family members.

                   

                  We always stop in Krauzner's.

                   

                  So odd.We procure a few of the NJ $5,000.000.00 EXTRAVAGANZA from here same week as her,several we bought as a family pool$$$

                  and from Rita Southwood pharmacy few doors away from KRAUZNER's.... same week and didn't win but 100.00 and a 20.00 

                  so we are still happy 1 of our Good neighbors won,she look so familiar,probably seen her when i was playing,so happy for her.

                   

                  Definitely,as my father and mom say,it is ALL ABOUT"RIGHT PLACE/RIGHT TIME."This is a great thing,and i hope she and her kids will make it last!"

                  i know she mention her father at the recent news conference,so bless them all.

                  Felicidades!!!Cheers

                  adios

                    i'm just talking with neighbor on the porch tonight 1/2 of block from where she struck big time gold with $5,000.000.00 gold ticket extravaganza,and the old timers next door to me Smilewas sounding like you( hay maker)saying,she is ONLY procuring couple million,maybe not even 1/2. i assume at least three million.but i now i konw,it is 2 million.So she really didn't win 5 million dollars,but 2 and 1/2 or something close to it,my old time neighbor retire law enforcement guy say,"she should play in PA,, i think there is  no taxes there?"  He only play with his wife and grandkids,the kids etc. mega.powerball etc.jersey cash 5.

                     

                    i'm still happy for her though...

                        really?you wouldn't? I know a few several who said it is too high as yourself,but some said they paid up to 3x to 5x buying this expensive ticket.

                         

                        You're an astute person suzy....My father/mother said same.

                         

                        Well,actully dad did lol mommie and i do at times procure "certain larger scratch off"

                        quite minimal,however, yea this was a "limited game here in my county,area.so much familia around the krauzner's there,people still talking about this win by ms.katona...!"Yea for a scratch-off"that is so hugeand there are TWO MORE 5 MILLION DOLLAR one's left,and Many 1000+ prizes left for now.

                         

                         

                        Oh!

                        and ANOTHER MEGA WINNER from this same area just 2 or so weeks ago amazing.... My county is pretty hot lately,i hope it continue!

                         

                        Not sure if the site over here, LOTTERY POST has heard,as i know they would post it here or maybe soon however another millionaire same

                        exact county minutes away from this store...Cheers  She is a older woman and she had 5 out of six Mega #s recent!

                        (From the  town Westfield,Rahway or in Kenilworth NJ

                        that is only minutes away from Linden.So awesome!
