I recently went on a trip from Michigan to Illinois.  On the way I went through Wisconsin and of course the Powerball jackpot was over $100 million so I bought some tickets (and was able to play PowerPlay finally!!!)  If I win over $600 do I have to pay taxes in both Wisconsin and Michigan?  Does anyone know?  Lets say I win the jackpot, that is a huge amount.  I believe I only have to pay the money to the state I live in.  (Michigan only has a 3.9% tax rate)  Anyone know?  Thanks!

      Thanks, I bought five tickets for tonights drawing in WI and matched 3 numbers.  Haven't done that in a long time.  And plus since I bought the PowerPlay I got to multiply it by 3.  $21 for $5...I made money....haha
