Important Notes

In some states, tax rates might be different than we listed here. We are fully aware of this. This analysis is for giving you a rough idea of tax amounts according to the tax percentages.

Local taxes might be imposed on your winnings by your government. Most of the time, lottery companies deduct those taxes before they hand over your winning amount.

You can reduce taxes imposed on your Jackpot amount by hiring a tax attorney who can manage your funds in a way that you have to pay lesser taxes on it.

The Jackpot amounts are approximate, so please don't be very sticky on this.

If you came to the US as a tourist and win a Jackpot then you have to pay 30% straight tax on your winning amount.
