Congratulations on your win.

If you itemize your deductions hold onto your loosing tickets for the rest of the year you can use them to get back some of the money they will take out of your winnings for taxes.

There is nothing better than hitting a pick 4 straight! Congratulations!!!

In addition to four4me's advice, if you don't "need" all of that money now, put off cashing in all of the tickets until after Jan. 1st, for tax purposes. Keep a little more for you instead of Uncle Sam...

 

Q. How long do I have to claim my Florida Lottery Prize?
 A. All Florida Lottery online games (CASH 3, PLAY 4, FANTASY 5, MEGA MONEY and FLORIDA LOTTO) prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the applicable draw date. Florida Lottery Scratch-Off game prizes must be claimed within 60 days of the official end-of-game date. FLORIDA LOTTO and MEGA MONEY jackpot winners who want to receive a one-time lump sum payment must claim their prizes within 60 days after the applicable draw date. Prize coupons for promotional games (e.g., raffle-style games) expire 60 days after the final drawing for that game.

                  Congrats on your win, yes I know a whole lot of shaking going on, I know the feeling. Get yourself a nice stiff drink, relax and start thinking about how to spend your money. Several others have offered some good tax advise, you might also want to consider putting some of it into an IRA {Individual Retirement Account} depending on your situation it might help you reduce your tax on the amount of the contribution and there's nothing like saving for your retirement, especially in these troubled economic times.

                  Congratulations on the win again and good luck to you in the future.
