As a postscript, the judge did rule that her home town may be revealed.

I think you should be able to remain private. I see it as when someone wins that kind of money and it's advertised? The vultures will come out in droves to see if they can scam the person out of some of it. Hometown is good enough. JMHO.

You'll never be able to stop the biggest vulture of all. The IRS.

Ha.......to the grave Jim, to the grave...

And beyond, the way it works these days. <s> Who would have thought 100 years ago that the government would find a way to tax you even after you were gone.

I think they should remain private, especially with that size of lottery.
Here in Canada they reveal the winners name, don't need to be photograph but the names, city and province are revealed. I hope they change that rule someone day. If I won 50 million, I don't want anyone knowing, take my cash and run to the islands.
Oh and to Jim's point, Revenue Canada gets one shot at income tax deduction, them I'm out of here.

It should be up to the winners to decide. In my mind only leeches would be interested in finding out who won.

I sure as hell want to know if my wife wins. I sure as hell wouldn't tell her if I won though.

The lottery in the uk lets the winners decide if they want the win to stay private or not....all winnings are free of tax....

wow! no tax! After taxes, this winner lost around half of it in taxes.
says Freeranger on Mar 13th 18 (#2732657)
The tax is paid for by the lottery company who offset most of it by giving to charities...
