*The Texas Lottery will report a winner of a lottery prize to the IRS once the prize has been claimed, as required under federal law. For U.S. citizens, the federal government requires lottery winnings be reported to the IRS for tax purposes if an individual wins $600 or more and if the winnings are at least 300 times the amount of the per board wager, or the winnings are subject to federal income tax withholding (winnings greater than $5,000). 

 

The tax withholding rate is 24% for winnings, less the wager, that are greater than $5,000. Prize withholdings are calculated on the total amount of gross proceeds (the amount of winnings minus the amount wagered). 

If you have questions regarding the tax consequences of winning any Texas Lottery® game, including a promotional second-chance drawing, we recommend that you consult with your own accountant or tax advisor. Once a claim is approved, the prize is considered to be claimed, and may not be changed or refused after that point, and tax responsibility will be borne by the prize winner.
