I would take the lump sum and not have tax withheld.
I would purchase land in a barren place and erect a solar farm.
I would get my tax credit for my solar farm that will offset the taxes due from the winning lottery.


Now all I need is to win the Lottery!

I'm pretty sure we all have the money spent. I'm thinking along the lines of a million dollar RV towing a million dollar boat with paid driver, maid, chef and boat captain. They all get their own RV's towing vehicles, quads and other toys. One special built four wheel drive van for adventuring away from home base.

I would buy a private stove collection in Wisconsin. 212 stoves. All are 10k-20k EACH. In need of a caretaker, in the near future.

That was my favorite song when it came out. Unfortunately you'd have to change it to $5,000,000 now.

The wife and I would buy a big farm and take in all stray animals, then we would choose needy and deserving families to help out to better their self's. Would also take care of all are family. But most of all we would help underage children and the ones without parents. their is so much good and love the money could do,,,, but also their could be alot of heartbreak with it. But on a side note,,,,, we have alot of heartbreak now without it from not being able to do this!

I was thinking Bare Naked Ladies could have another hit by just changing the lyrics. If I had a million dollars, I'd still be broke.
If I had a Trillion dollars.....
