Do you have to claim lottery winnings as income when you file your taxes?
Asked by: megan
There is an ongoing debate in my ‘office pool’ regarding the lottery.
If we were to win and took a lump sum; at the end of the year, would we have to claim money won as income when we filed our taxes, even though we already paid taxes when we won?
