All Michigan Lottery prizes are subject to federal, state and local income taxes. The Lottery is required by law to report to the IRS all winnings greater than $600. The Lottery is required by law to withhold estimated taxes at the rate of 25 percent (federal) and 4.35 percent (state) for any prize over $5,000 paid to a U.S. resident. Winners of prizes greater than $600 will receive a W2-G form, detailing prize payment and taxes, at time of payment to be filed with their yearly federal, state and local income taxes. Non-U.S. residents winning prizes of greater than $600 are subject to a flat 30 percent estimated federal withholding rate as well as the 4.35 percent state withholding rate and will receive a 1042 form detailing prize payment and taxes in February.How do I request a duplicate W2-G?
Duplicate W2-G's can be requested by calling 517-373-6001.Do I Have to Release My Name to the Public?
In 1988, the Michigan Legislature enacted Public Act 243 which gives winners of prizes greater than $10,000 the right to remain anonymous. However, Mega Millions and Powerball winners are exempt from this act. The names and cities of residence for all Michigan Lottery Mega Millions and Powerball winners (including the jackpot) are considered public record.If I Win a Jackpot Installment Prize But Die Before I Receive All Scheduled Payments, What Happens to My Remaining Payments?
The prize is paid out in FULL. According to the Michigan Lottery Act, "the Lottery Bureau shall continue to make the remaining prize payments to the prize-winner's surviving spouse and living children, in equal proportions, unless otherwise directed by the prizewinner. If no spouse, children, or beneficiaries exist, the remaining prize payments shall be made to the prize-winner's estate."
Lottery players in cities all over the U.S. are pooling their resources for an increased chance at lottery riches. Dozens of Michigan-based lottery clubs have collected top Lottery prizes, and players throughout the state are finding out that clubs are a fun way to try their luck at Lottery. So how are they doing it? By forming lottery clubs, and you can, too!What Is a Lottery Club?
Put simply, a lottery club is a group of at least two individuals who purchase wagers in a lottery game together and if a prize is won, it's divided among the lottery club members. It is up to the lottery club to determine its rules of operation, including distribution of prize monies to members. Before a prize can be claimed in the name of a club, an Employer Identification Number (EIN) must be obtained.How Do You Start a Lottery Club?
It’s really quite easy. Simply obtain an SS-4 form (Application for Employer Identification Number) from a U.S. Treasury or Internal Revenue Service (IRS) office. You can download the SS-4 Application for Employer Identification Number form from the IRS Forms and Publications page. Other useful forms are also available at this site
You may also call the IRS forms number toll-free at 1-800-829-3676 to order the SS-4 form. Once your form is completed, return it to the IRS, not to the Lottery.How will the IRS know what portion of a prize a lottery club member received?
The club is required to fill out a Substitute 5754 form prior to prize payment. On this form (which will be signed by all club members), each member's name, address, date of birth, phone numbers and Social Security number will be listed, as well as their portion of winnings before taxes. This information will be used by the Lottery to issue payments and the IRS during tax time.
At time of payment, the club members will each receive a W-2G Form, showing their portion of the prize and income tax withholding, if any. Each member then uses the W2-G Form to complete his or her yearly tax return for the year in which the prize was paid by the Lottery.
For more information about federal income taxation and club reporting responsibilities, contact the IRS at (800) 829-1040.
For state tax information, contact the Michigan Department of Treasury at (517) 636-4486
By law, all unclaimed Michigan Lottery prizes (or portions of a Mega Millions or Powerball prize funded by Michigan) revert back to the state School Aid Fund.
