$1 billion lottery winners are not giving out free money
Beware and don’t fall for any lottery scams. Fraudulent text messages, emails and even harassing phone calls are the hallmark of lottery scammers.
Kurt Panouses is the tax attorney that accepted the billion-dollar Mega Millions prize in March of this year. On average, he receives about five to 10 phone calls per week from people attempting to verify alleged free prizes.
Make no mistake, the Wolverine FLL Club is not giving out random amounts of money to people. Lottery winners can max out to the $11.7 federal gift tax limit. According to Panouses, “After you give away $11.7 million in gifts, the IRS says, ‘Wait a minute. We need to know more information.’ There is not going to be a winner saying, ‘I’m going to give $20 million to 20 random people.’”
