About New Jersey Lottery

Since its inception in 1970, the New Jersey Lottery has paid out over $42 billion in prizes. The state has also received a contribution of over $28 billion. These funds go toward protecting the retirement benefits of the state’s civil servants.

New Jersey doesn’t currently have an iLottery available. Players may, however, use the dedicated app for iOS and Android devices to create ePlayslips. Select your favorite numbers and present the unique barcode along with payment to your NJ Lottery retailer. Players can also use the app to play the latest scratch games, check draw results, and scan your ticket to see if you’ve won.

New Jersey Tax Information 

Aspect Description
State Income Tax on Winnings New Jersey charges a state tax of 5% on all prizes over $10,000. At $500,000, that rate increases to 8%.
Federal Income Tax on Winnings The New Jersey Lottery is required to withhold 24% of all winnings over $5,000 for Federal tax.
Non-US Citizens Tax Rate Non-US citizens must pay a Federal tax of 30% on all winnings over $600.
Tax Bracket Consideration Winning a large prize may put you into a higher tax bracket, possibly as high as 37%.
Payout Options Winners have the choice between receiving their prizes as an annuity (installments spread over years) or a once off lump sum.
Impact of Payout Options Receiving a lump sum payment could put the winner in a significantly higher income tax bracket for that year. This means one big tax payment. Annuity payments, however, put the winner in a slightly higher income tax bracket spread over the period of receiving the installments. This means smaller tax payments over this period.
