Here some quick links that may come in handy for Mega Millions players:
If you win a prize greater than $600, the state in which you won is required to notify the Internal Revenue Service. For tax information, here is a link to the IRS Web Site: www.irs.gov
We strongly encourage winners of large prizes to get professional financial advice. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants offers a variety of financial planning tools and can help find a personal financial specialist.
If you or someone you know has a gambling addiction, or if you have questions or need help, you can contact the National Council on Problem Gambling: www.ncpgambling.org or Gamblers Anonymous: www.gamblersanonymous.org.
