How is Powerball played

Powerball can be played for $2 per ticket. Players must select 5 white balls from numbers 1-69 and 1 red Powerball from numbers 1-26. If a player matches all 6 of his numbers, he can win a huge jackpot.

The odds of matching all five numbers with the Powerball number and winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

However, prior to 2015, Cue Balls were numbered 1-59 and Powerballs were numbered 1-35. This change makes players more likely to win small prizes, but less likely to hit the jackpot, and more likely for large numbers to grow to record sizes. Source CNN

What is the Tax payable on this Jackpot

What would that tax bill look like once you hit your mother’s veins? $223 million in savings.

However, the IRS may have more rights when taxing. The state’s top income tax rate is 37%, which applies to income over $539,900 for single taxpayers and $647,850 for married couples this year.

Next year, the top tax rate will apply to income above $578,125 (individuals) and $693,750 (couples). This means that an additional 13% (approximately $120.8 million) will go to the IRS unless you can reduce your taxable income by, for example, donating to charity.

So a total of $343.8 million went into federal funding, leaving $585.3 million. State taxes may apply depending on where you purchased your ticket and where you live. Some jurisdictions have no income tax or no tax on lottery winnings, while others impose top tax rates in excess of 10%.

On the other hand, if you choose an annuity amount, it will be taxed as it will be distributed annually and the tax rate at that time will apply.
