Have there been any Mega Millions jackpot winners in PA? I looked on both the PA Lottery site and the MM site and couldn't find any info.

Also, can you claim anonymously there?

    You cannot claim anonymously there.

    Also PA makes all winners wait for all large prizes for 6 weeks.

    Therefore it is better to buy tickets in New Jersey if you live near the border.    New Jersey will release your name, but requires no conference.

    I know a guy that one around $10,000 in PA, and he was really upset with the wait.

      Does this mean that Pennsylania has both Mega Millions and Powerball?

        New Jersey now taxes income, now including NJ lottery prizes, over $500k at 10.25% and over $1 million at 10.75%. The maximum income tax in PA is 3.07%. Buying a ticket in NJ instead of PA to avoid the possibility of waiting a few weeks longer for the check would be incredibly stupid if you're not a NJ resident.

          No mega millions for PA, But this is the first year that PA joined Mega millions.

            PA does have both MM and PB.  PA joined MM in February.  PB has been here a while.

            No anonymous claims. They don't require a press conference.  If you claim through a trust, the beneficiaries of the trust are named.  You don't pay state tax on the winnings if you are a PA resident. 

             

            Nearby Md, De and Oh allow for anonymous claims.

            Md requires non residents to pay 7.5% state income tax; residents pay 9.5% state income tax.

            I think OH requires state and local tax to be paid even for non residents.

              Why go to New Jersey and not Delaware where you can remain anonymous? Granted Delaware doesn't have many big winners but we've had a few lol. :P
