IRS Can't Determine Powerball Winner's Taxes


#1

JAY LENO: Well, folks, the mystery is over. The winner has been revealed. After a month of waiting, it turns out an 84-year-old woman in Florida has won the $590 million Powerball lottery. $590 million, 84 years old. I bet her kids regret putting grandma in the nursing home now. Huh? Yeah, no. ‘We love you grandma! we were just coming to see you next weekend. We didn’t know!’

It’s already gone to her head. She already had big rims put on her Rascal scooter, you know. She’s got the – she’s going all out. Now, as for how much tax she’s going to have to pay on that $590 million, the IRS said it’s too soon to tell 'cause they don’t know whether she’s a a Republican or a Democrat. So it’s going to be a while – it’s going to take a while to figure that out. Yeah. (*The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, June 5, 2013)

This may be a joke but there is some truth to it because of what the IRS has been doing.:rofl:

[/quote]I heard she took home 278 million after taxes. She should give some to the lady who let her “jump” line.
