Minding Your Business: Friday, November 30, 2012

Powerball fever may be over for those of us that did not win, but Christine Romans is minding your business with how lottery winners are taxed. Whether they choose to take it as a lump sum or an annuity, it will be taxed at the highest federal tax rate of 35%. The lump sum still gets you $192.5million before taxes.
