Lottery Taxes

Lottery taxes are the downside of winning large sums of money or valuable prizes in state and national games. One thing is certain. If you don't pay the IRS the tax man will be knocking on your door. Just ask Richard Hatch, winner of the reality show Survivor.

Annuities

Annuities are financial contracts made with an insurance company. Policy holders agree to contribute either a lump sum payment or series of payments in exchange for periodic payments to be returned immediately or at a later date. In essence, annuities are similar to a savings account. Funds are contributed, interest in accrued and annuity payouts are distributed according to terms outlined when the account is established.

One benefit of establishing annuities is they allow Annuitants to obtain tax-deferred growth of earnings. Most annuity agreements allow Annuitants to establish beneficiaries to receive future payments if the Annuitant dies before the policy expires. Annuities can also be established to pay only the Annuitant or divide funds amongst dependents.

Purchase Structured Settlements

In order to purchase structured settlements in the U.S., investors and annuity brokers are required to adhere to state and federal regulations. Structured settlements are established to provide long-term income to individuals who have been injured due to the neglect of another. Injury settlements are often arranged for victims of automobile accidents, medical malpractice or workman's compensation injuries.

Approximately 75-percent of U.S. states prohibit the purchase of structured settlements. States allowing the sale of annuity payments require Annuitants to obtain court authorization. Since annuities are primarily used to provide funds for ongoing healthcare expenses or replace income lost for injuries resulting in disability, courts are reluctant to allow Annuitants to sell forthcoming payments.
