Whereas the IRS will scrape 24% — or $239.4 million — off the highest for federal tax withholding, California doesn’t tax lottery winnings, in line with the state’s lottery winner’s handbook. So if the profitable ticket holder lives within the Golden State, no state or native taxes on the windfall could be due.
Nevertheless, if the winner lives elsewhere, their state of residency would decide what they owe of their jurisdiction. These levies vary from zero to greater than 10%, relying on the state.
On the federal degree, greater than the preliminary $239.4 million withheld would seemingly be due at tax time as a result of the highest federal fee is 37%.
Until the winner was capable of cut back their taxable earnings — i.e., by making massive charitable donations — one other 13%, or $129.7 million, could be as a result of IRS. That may be $369.1 million in all going to federal taxes, leaving the winner with $628.5 million.
