This is how i feel...If is more than 10 million take taxes from it..But if is a $25K to $600K Pick5 they should not take taxes....

don't you feel the same way....For instance i keep forgetting that the typical american houses now costs 500K.....So if you win 500K in the lottery it leaves you with 250K after taxes....Can't even pay your house really good...

You know how many dodge charger you could had buy with $250K, all taken away from you....To me the acceptable tax for $500K should be 50,000...This people forget that if you are married with your wife and kids which most people are and she decides break up with you you all have to split that 500,000 house is going to be half yours half hers...So what are you telling me....

The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

    I agree with you, however...

     

    taxes fund the government that protects and enables the life you live right now.

     

     

    If we don't pay our government then (insert rival nation here) would march right in here and take your freedom, instead of just a few dollars that were not in your pocket in the first place.

     

     

    :D

      Yeah but those amounts 25K-600K, they don't even make up 1% of the revenue the government gets from taxing so why tax it...

      What about the American dream? again if is 10 milion or more tax it but if is 25K to 600K let people live their small American dream....

      Tell me if you win 50,000 and half of it is taken away from you leaving you with 25,000, what can you do with 25K? What can you do with that? so why play in the first place...

      I don't think countries want to march into the USA and take away something...The only thing they will want to take away is the Military secrets, atomic bomb secret & if they could carry with them the stock market they would had but other than than i don't think they want to march and take nothing away...

      USA got a perception problem....

        I believe all lotto winnings should be tax free.  Remember, the government gets 50% of all wagers before the draw.  Then they tax the winner to get even more.  They should be satisfied with the first 50%.

          To me, they should collect 2 pennies more out of every dollar they collect, thus 52% of every dollar...Take those 2 pennies out of every dollar and they will have their money...And this way not have to tax half of what you win....

              Into the pockets of the fat cats that run this wonderful country. I mean after all the purpose of most states having a lottery is to fund education and things along that nature. At least that what we were told before we voted yes.  Now we have to pay taxes too??? Who really wins? Not me.
