The Tax Break Shenanigans of J. Winston Krause

In 2008, Commissioner J Winston Krause sued the IRS to get a
refund of interest and penalties he had paid for a disallowed
deduction and income. The disallowed deduction ... he
bought Canadian dollars for $20K; claimed he paid
$2.8 million; he showed a loss of <$2.7 million> yet
he had sold the Canadian dollars for $19.5K. A 2010
5th Circuit of Appeals quote ... "Krause's Tax
Chicanery
" A very interesting and telling story
about the man who Chairs our Lottery.

(If the TLC is short to fund prizes, then the TLC will take monies
from the TLC's operating account OR the schools share
of sales. We will now track to see how much money the TLC
is having to take from their operating account to fund prizes.

This is a direct result of the game offering "guaranteed"
prizes. Extremely risky for the state of Texas!

Note: When there is no winner, the monies due a winner
is held in this account until it is paid out. That figure is the
"Allocated From Gross Sales" figure above.)

Next Lotto Texas Jackpot
The TLC is advertising the next pot to be
$5.25 million - but - they will NOT have
$5.25 million - cash on hand - for the winner.
A 6 of 6 winner has won 40.47% from total "roll" sales.
They take this percentage of sales and IF invested, would give a
return of approximately the amount advertised over 25 years.
Players share is 50% of sales and the states share is 50%.

Interesting Mega Million/Big Game Stats
Since inception - They've sold 37.6 billion tickets, conducted
1864 draws and only 221 of those draws were won.

Important "Megaplier" Info For Players
The Megaplier number "drawn" is NOT drawn from
a traditional drawing machine and set of balls. It is
generated from a computer and is shown in animation.
It is NOT really a "random" number that is drawn.


Mega Millions Draw Details
What is 175.7 million-to-one odds?

On Oct 22, 2013, the odds increased from
175.7 million-to-one to 258,890,000 million-to-one
Whoa ... it's going to be so much harder to win.
Also in increased from 26 to 30 year annual payments

Since the new rule took effect (Oct 22, 2013), the game
is doing exactly what they intended for it to do ... ROLL!

And the players are expressing their disgust
by speaking with their dollars ... sales are DOWN.

Here's Proof ...
On March 30, 2012 the MM jackpot was $640 million
and sales were $651,915,940. On Dec 17, 2013, the MM
jackpot was $636 million and sales were $336,545,306.
YEP ... I'd say sales ARE down!

About The Mega Millions Prizes
(Each states "guaranteed share" is 50% of its own
sales and the other 50% is "suppose" to be paid
out in prizes in all 43 states/jurisdictions. Because ALL
except the jackpot prize are "guaranteed prizes," players
are NOT guaranteed that they will see a return of
50% of sales and probably won't see that much.)
