I think the only state that allows you to remain anonymous AND does not tax your winnings is Delaware.  Lucky ducks.

    Why does every lottery winner say they are going to give a cut of their winnings to charity? It's ad if they are now obligated to give due to their good fortune. Do a little checking and you'll find that a very small percentage of the money actually goes to the intended cause. That's why the charities are not called "Paint the CEO's house," or "Buy the CEO a new mercedes."

    Well said!! I Agree!

    I never understand why those who run and operate your average charity are also HIGHLY paid? 

    Google WORST CHARITIES and look at how many give nothing to the charity.  Recently Wounded Warriors was in the news, their staff was blowing in the CEO for the waste of money on events for the employees.

      Delaware changed the law in 2009 and does NOW tax lottery winnings.  One can still remain anonymous though.

         When I win then I will just say,"Family" about who will receive my generosity. That is exactly what Julie Leach did recently in her press conference. Julie Leach $140,000,000.00 Michigan Power Ball winner. She is in LP's search box.

          And then you get "family" coming out of the wood until the end of time.

             Thank You MaximumMillions.  I will reconsider my options. Do not do the grip and grin photo. Do not do the press interview. But I will give the press a written statement detailing my LP membership and USAmega.

             Of course, when my "family" finds out then all hell will break loose. I plan on contacting them on Sunday before I claim. 

            Good Luck to LP members and staff. Let us make another record breaking PB jackpot.
