      yeah... and not even on the powerball ticket.  Imagine that!

            Some folks have all the luck.

            The jackpot-winning Powerball ticket was a $1 quick-pick generated free in conjunction with a Lottery promotion.

             

            So his $42,529,765, turns out to be only $1.4 million, after he gives the bulk of it away to relatives. I don't think I will do that, if I ever win the big one.

                If the one who actually owned the ticket was up in age and thought he might be leaving most of it to his relatives in his estate, doing this way might have saved his relatives a lot of head aches and a lot of taxes too.  Doesn't sound like something that someone with the arrogant manners of EZMoney would do.

                where's EZMoney

                    i had to consult my voodoo mystical section to get to the bottom of this - my heebee jeebee senses believe the following to be 100% true:

                    the winner is actually a couple of ladies that won, middle aged ..

                    ez is from pa and has begged his lucky stars for the lotto to come to pa - it did but

                    he is 100% NOT the winner [i previously really thought he was until ...]

                    he has posted at least four times on this very subject board .. i expect a 'newbie' [aka .. him] will challenge my claims

                    and after assessing all his previous posts, ezmoney is the type to be at the lotto headquarters when it opened first thing monday morning holding the 'screw you' news conference and before consulting anyone

                    so that's it .. the real winners should be coming out by the end of this week - several ladies will be at the press conference and no sign of a late 20s kid

                    -- just my heebee jeebee hunch ---- as for the $86mil ezmoney money watch, i'm out and the above facts are more realiable than the original 'claim' trust me

                    No NoSulk Off

                    oh man, i'm going into consultations in the psychic world!!! i'm posting what my heebee jeebee spidy senses told me - did you guys go onto lancasteronline dot com ?? it's friday [end of week] did you see the middle aged group of four ladies standing there holding the check? i rest my case ....  i'll be doing predictions and reading individual fortunes from 2-3 monday afternoon.  thank you

                      Yes, they have no trouble flying as high as the like in Middle-earth, but when they visit the ole homestead here in Texas, they keep getting on the wrong side of Homeland security if they fly higher than a hundred feet.

                        where's EZMoney

                        I didn't think of that. Here in Texas (if I understand the rule) only one person can claim a ticket.

                          And that, as they say, is that... Hmmm, last name of one side of that family is Edwards... Interesting... I wonder if there's any relation to whatshisname...

                          Okay, probably not. Congrats to this family who won, I hope they set this up beforehand and aren't just going to be handing out even amounts to everyone or they're going to be screwed hard at tax time.

                            For real. I used to think to myself, that if I ever win Powerball, I was going to give half to my parents. I knew the gift tax existed, but I had no idea how high it was. I decided to look on the IRS website and found out that it's 45%. That is insanely high. If I gave half to my parents, I would end up with close to 1/4 of what I actually won and I would end up having a lot less than them, which doesn't make sense to me. So I decided I'm just going to give them enough to retire. I know the gift tax is supposed to be lowered to 35% in 2010, but even that's still insanely high. I think the gift tax is completely retarded. I hope they get rid of it.

                              If it's just your parents and you want to give them half, they could be co-owners of the ticket and you would be responsible for paying the taxes on your half and they on theirs. It becomes more complicated when the winners want to keep half and decide to give the rest to many members of their family and/or friends.

                              It would be great if the lotteries would allow the winners to divide the winnings into shares to avoid paying the gift, but I doubt the IRS allows them.
