Plus federal & state income tax, unless state income tax doesn't apply, or your state permits you to redeem to a blind trust and pay the taxes at the time the money was distributed.

(New York State allows blind trusts, which means you can have your attorney show up to claim the prize and nobody knows who actually won the lottery).

>not taking payments
Its only 40% taxed I believe if you take the lump sum and 60% if you take it all at once. You'd still be making millions a year. The thing is, you don't want the money to change you. It's best if people don't know you're a millionaire and you can still fit your old life with your new one. It sucks when people will be your friends only because they know you're rich. Finding a girl that actually likes you for you and etc etc. This is why most rich people only associate themselves with other rich people.

get the lump sum, pay the taxes
buy container ship (~25mill)
build air tight, sealed living quarters
build indoor farms and other sustainable sources for food
stock up on breathable air, fuel
maybe have ~300mil left, put it in fixed income investments, take out ~4%, or 12mil/year
100 man crew/army (30k/year salaries + food/living, ~5mil/year total cost)
spend the rest on fuel / computer upgrades / luxury items
as world economy collapses reallocate money into precious metals
live out days watching USA crumble and modern society die while relaxing in comfort on my private cruise ship
after WW3 and air is breathable again resettle on the ruins of America
set up my own government, declare myself a living god
burn all libraries and historical documents, bulldoze the statue of liberty
build even bigger statue of myself

Haven't though much farther than that.

>>52330443

you have two options:
they take the full amount pre-tax and put it into a trust paid out over 30 years, which counts as income so you still pay tax on it.

Or you take a smaller, lump sum, which is like a little more than half the full value. I'm not sure how they determine it. Then you pay tax on it right away.

Most people would rather just have cash up front so they can buy a house, give to relatives, etc.

It's that in my third world country the state run lottery prizes are exempt from taxes (upon the prize -- still taxable on further gains, investments, naturally).

From my perspective it feels like a cheat to force you on a trust fund paid with installments; especially since they, the lottery, are receiving/collecting cash on present value and paying you on futures.

25% is not the Federal Tax, that's the Federal Withholding on lottery winnings. .

For that much money, the Federal Tax is 39.6%. You'd better be prepared to pay about another $82M in federal taxes if you take the lump sum.

That's so much money man, I don't know.
First lump sum obviously.
Then set up different kind of investment accounts, trust funds, bonds, etc. to not have the money rot away and lose in interest.
After the money is safe from me and interest, I'd just buy a house somewhere alright with good internet, get a shitbox car, travel the world maybe the first year, come back and then...

Floridafag, too. The state has all of your information available online, including full name and address, so I would suggest you follow this:
- Get a burner. Pay in cash.
- Find a lawyer. Give him your burner's number, and give it only to him.
- Ask your lawyer to rent a hotel under his name for you. Your lawyer will probably cover the cost and just bill you for it later.
- Ask your lawyer to rent a car for you, under his name.
- Move all of your valuable possessions and documents out of your home. Your lawyer can secure documents for you; give other physical belongings to a family member you would trust with your life.
- Come forward, claim the prize, go into hiding. Contact your lawyer only.
- Stay under wraps for a few weeks for it to blow over.

Not be like notch, that's for sure.

I'd keep things modest but comfortable. I'd hire personal trainers/teachers for everything and try maintain a schedule with goals. Learn more instruments, maybe be taught another language, just things to keep me busy with what I'm interested in at the time.

Seriously, if I got into something silly like gardening or bee keeping I'd work for someone for a couple of months, the pay wouldn't matter any.

You see celebs and rich people and they all have iPhones. Apple dosen't pay them, its just that there is no better option for them.
So even if you're a poor miserable wagesalve, you can still get the same phone as the most successful person on the planet have.
Pretty insane what Apple have managed t.b.h.

The whole point of the lottery is to bring in revenue for the state. Only in fucking third world countries do they think a fucking lottery provides any value to society other than being a clever voluntary tax.

Not saying you're stupid if you play the lottery, I bought some powerball tickets just because its fun. But you're a fucking idiot if you care about whether or not you pay taxes on a $900 million jackpot price. You don't play the lottery because you actually think you'll win, its just fun to know that you could.

Enjoy being a fucking retard.

We've been running SSD's in our servers for 4 years now, haven't had a single file lost, nor a single failure.
We've got SSD's in every server and even have our CAD files stored on SSD's.

That said, the SSD's are in RAID to prevent downtime in case of a single SSD failing, and we have a good back-up system. (On site, off site and online backup, versioned).

If you're not retarded you can use SSD's in servers and it'll most likely be one of the cheapest and most useful upgrades possible.

Hell we're running consumer grade SSD's (Crucial M4's) in our servers without a single issue.

dude. you ever watch those shows about lottery winners? they buy the most expensive shit in the world, then by the time they bought all those material things, they go broke because they dont know how to manage thwir money then they have to sell everything they have for like 1/3rd what its worth and then they have to go back to work

when you wih the lottery you do a few basic things first:

pay off all bills
buy a house cash
buy a car cash
buy necessities. clothes, furniture, etc

then you can concentrate on other things.

put some into savings account
open savings accounts for your kids/wife for their future needs

invest some money

go on vacation
travel
enjoy life

the key is to not overspend

the average broke ghetto family doesnt need a $3 million dollar mansion, and a $200k luxury car. im not saying its not good to spend money on yourself for new toys, but its about being sensible with the money. you dont need a $75k painting in your mansion. or rare statues or whatever else these rich snobby fucks waste their money on because they think the gold at the end of the lottery rainbow is bottomless.

Mostly this, but I'd still splurge here and there. I'd invest maybe a hundred million or more into a high-yield savings account so I could basically live off the interest for the rest of my life.

Then I'd invest another couple hundred million intelligent - automatically managed ETFs and such. Long-term kind of investing, none of this playing the market bullshit.j

Anything left over with I'd first of all pay off my college loans, buy one or two nice cars, splurge on computers out the ass, get a nice - but not outrageous - home or condo or just a nice apartment.
