U.S. citizen wins Lotto 6/49


No footage found.

Barry Artiste Op/Ed

For one American citizen and his family, Canada is the country that keeps on giving.

For the US Government, a 2 million dollar tax windfall from one of it's citizens is pretty much good fortune for its depleted tax coffers.

It was evident Sean Mayer was trying to figure out ways to beat the tax man even while the 51-year-old Seattle-area businessman was collecting a $7.5 million cheque for winning the Jan. 3 Lotto 6/49 draw.

But, because Mayer's American, he's going to have to cough up $2.1 million of that prize money to the U.S. government.
