Better luck next time. The winning $540 million Mega Millions jackpot ticket wasn't sold in Minnesota. It was sold in Indiana.
But the winner doesn't just get to exchange his or her ticket for $540 million in cash.
In fact, if the winner wants all the money right away, he or she will (only) be able to collect $380 million, minus some for taxes.
The best bet would probably be to accept payments over the course of 30 years. But taxes still cut down the jackpot.
CNBC says the winner would be subject to the highest federal tax rate which is almost 40 percent. The government also withholds about 25 percent of that prize if the winner has a social security number; if not, the government withholds more.
