 Let's say I won 72 million dollars and receive 40 mil for cash value. They will deduct 25% for tax and that means they take 10 mil.

 Still I can report that in the annual tax report. So, can I receive any tax return from it?

    Assuming you mean can you get a "refund", of course you can. All you have to do is come up with deductions to reduce your net taxable income to less than about $28.5 million. Possible strategies include giving $13 million or so to charity or  paying $15 million in medical expenses for a really major illness. You could also hurry out and spend $30 million on lottery tickets, and lose the expected 50% by 12/31.
