The Tax Break Shenanigans
of J. Winston Krause

In 2008, Commissioner 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.

About Those Awful Changes
To Mega Millions

If Players had consumer protection, rules like
this would not be adopted. Increased odds,
increased ticket price ($2), still offers a
break-even prize and a jackpot winner receives
whatever amount the Finance Group
determines - not the amount in the prize pool.

Information The TLC Doesn't Have ...
Lone Star Line Up - Sales By Draw
See the dollar value of tickets sold for Cashfive,
Triple Chance and All or Nothing as a direct result
of this promotion. NOTE: While FREE tickets (sales)
for Pick 3 and Daily 4 should be the same, for some
reason, in several draws, sales varied by 50 cents. In
this pdf, figures shown in RED represents Pick 3 FREE
tickets. Originally posted 9/7/17 - Will update

About Lone Star Line Up
A TX Lottery Promotion

The TLC claims they do not know how many
Lone Star Line Up tickets are sold each day.
Plus they reported conflicting sales figures for the
FREE Pick3 and Daily 4 tickets that players
receive when they purchase the $5 promotional
ticket. Posted 1/22/17 Click here.


I Goofed So I Apologized
Read my apology letter ... Also, TLC
wants $456 to provide sales data.
Unreal! What will the AG do to help me?
