    On October 21, 1998, the Tax and Trade Release Extension Act of 1998 was signed into law creating a new provision in the Internal Revenue Code (26 USC 451) which changed the constructive receipts doctrine. Section 451 (h) allows a lottery to offer qualified lottery prizewinners a period of time to elect whether to take major lottery prize payments in a single lump sum or in installment payments. It is the intent and purpose of the Bureau to offer the cash option payment in a revenue neutral manner.

    Application of Cash Option Payment

    Formal notice of the Internal Revenue Code 26 USC 451(h) option will be given when the grand prize winner files his or claim at the Bureau's Lansing office.

    The formal notice will remain valid for a period of sixty (60) days after the date of the notice or until the option (cash or annuity) is exercised, whichever is earlier. Unless the cash option is exercised within sixty (60) days of the formal notice, the prize will be paid in installments.

    The cash option payment once elected is irrevocable and will be allowed for the entire prize amount only.

    A partnership or other pass through entity whose members otherwise qualify as eligible persons will be considered to be the eligible person.

    A representative of the partnership or other pass through entity, who is legally identified by the entity, will be deemed authorized to act for the partnership or other pass through entity for purposes of electing a cash option payment.

    The eligible person or the representative of the partnership or other pass-through entity will make the election based on the discount rate in effect at the time of the drawing. An eligible person will have no claim against the Bureau or the State of Michigan because of the discount rate.

    2. The grand prize winner who elects the Cash Option Payment method of receiving the grand prize will be paid a lump sum amount.
    3. The grand prize winner who elects the annuity will be paid in annual installments over twenty (20) years. The first payment will be made at the time the prize is claimed; subsequent installments will be paid each year on or about the fifteenth day of the anniversary month of the prize drawing for the next nineteen (19) years.
    4. The value of the annuitized grand prize is $1,000,000.

    Prizes over $5,000 are subject to federal tax withholding for U.S. residents and state income tax withholding at the current rate. Special federal rules apply to withholding for non-resident aliens. Any money withheld in compliance with these requirements will be deposited with the state and federal treasuries under the winner's federal identification number. At the time of the prize payment, the winner that claims a prize of more than $600 will receive a tax statement of gambling winning (W2-G) which identifies the full amount of the prize awarded and the tax withheld if any.


    In accordance with MCL 432.32 before payment of a cash prize of $1,000 or more, the Bureau is obligated to determine if: (1) the Michigan Department of Treasury records show that the Lottery winner has a current liability to this state or a support arrearage; or, (2) the Unemployment Insurance Agency records show that the lottery winner has any current liability for restitution of unemployment benefits, penalty, or interest under section 15 of the Michigan employment security act, 1936 (Ex Sess) PA1, MCL 421.15. If a liability to this state, a support arrearage, or an unemployment compensation debt is identified, the Bureau shall ascertain the amount owed from the Department of Treasury or the Unemployment Insurance Agency and shall apply the amount of the prize as set for the in MCL 432.32. In compliance with MCL 432.32a, within 7 days after paying a prize of $1,000.00 or more, the Bureau shall notify the Department of Human Services of the name of and other available identifying information regarding the winner of the prize and the amount of the prize.


    In the event a dispute between the Bureau and the person who has submitted an entry into this Promotional Period occurs and the dispute involves whether the entry is valid, the rules of this program, the conduct of the drawing, or for any other reason: the Commissioner's decision will be final.


    All lottery transactions and claims are governed by the laws of the State of Michigan, all rules, regulations, and directives of the Michigan Lottery, and any changes thereto. All decisions made by the Commissioner including the declaration of redemption items and reward distributions are final and binding on every person making a claim. This redemption promotion in no way altars the Bureau’s other directives except as provided herein.


    The only basis for a valid claim is compliance with the Michigan law statute, rules and directives. No claim may be premised on human, electronic, or other error in the communication, display or transmission of data, however recorded, displayed, or transmitted. No claim can be premised upon any intentional human, electronic or other form of communication or transmission of data that has not been authorized by the Commissioner.
