Very happy for the person (s) who win lottery money, but am terribly disappointed in the way they give out the funds, cutting the whole pot in half... for a one time pay-out!!!!???? Why not give the person ALL of the money except maybe $10,000, and then tax it? What a rip-off.
I'm pretty sure the USA is 1 of the few countries (maybe the only one) to tax lottery winnings. Canada and th UK count it as "Found Money" and not subject to tax.
I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure I'm right.
