WHEN YOU WIN A LOTTERY JACKPOT, WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
Since lottery winners are exempt from paying state taxes on their winnings, Texas is one of the eight states that pay the highest rates.
Additionally, since Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah do not take part in the national lottery at all, your friends in those states might urge you to buy them a ticket.
