I'd like to know who voted "no"?  Did they misread the question?  Who wants to give the government more money than we already do???

Have you ever paid taxes on lottery winnings?

    I'm starting to think that those who voted "no" thus wanting to pay taxes on lottery winnings may not have understood the question. I can't see anyone in their right mind wanting to pay the government more taxes than necessary unless they have money to burn.

    After reading the question real quick I thought it implied if I wanted to pay taxes on lottery winnings until I re-read it again. The "no" was easily overlooked. 

    Like most here, I chose yes.

          I'd be okay with paying more taxes and remaining anonymous (hence why I buy in another state)

              I didn't vote, but it seems to me (I) that those who voted "no" meant that they don't want to pay taxes on lottery winnings, so probably all the votes there "yes and no" were for "No, we don't want to pay taxes on lottery winnings".

              I feel like:

                Should lottery winnings be taxed in America is kinda debatable. Yes pay a no tax on lottery but when the next person or group wins the next billion dollar jackpot the losers are going to kick themselves extra harder and act more envious than before because the the whole jackpot would be completely tax free to the lucky ticket holder. Not paying a no tax for lottery is sort of justice for the losers we'll know that the winners won't get a complete piece of the pie and move on.

                  More realistic poll would be, would you like to receive 50% less of a jackpot and not pay taxes or pay taxes on a jackpot
