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. Posted 10/23/17. Click here for details
Information The Texas Lottery 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. 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 the pdf, figures

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.

This is an unofficial site and is not associated
with the TLC (Texas Lottery). Although I take
extreme care in posting the results- I offer no
warranty as to the accuracy of any of my
presented information. To confirm winning
numbers - I strongly urge you to obtain a
printout from your retailer. Do NOT ask
them to run your tickets through the machines -
the TxLottery machines can & do make mistakes.
Check your own tickets.
Here's why lottotexas.com has moved ....
The Texas Lottery filed a complaint with WIPO and
the panelist ruled in their favor - awarding the
Texas Lottery the domain name, lottotexas.com/net.
I have 10 days to file a lawsuit which I'm currently considering.
Filing a lawsuit is my only option in keeping the domain names.
(I decided not to pursue this issue)
Here is the story about the Texas Lottery's victory,
then I've made additional comments for you ....
Texas Lottery Hits Jackpot, Wins 3 Domain Names
The Texas Lottery Commission has won a big prize, taking home three domain names through arbitration including one that gets over 65,000 visits a month.
The group filed the complaint against The Lotto Report for LottoTexas.com, LottoTexas.net, and Megaplier.org. Megaplier is the name of a lotto add-on in the state that lets people multiply their winnings. LottoTexas.com is a big traffic domain, and Compete.com shows it getting nearly 20,000 uniques and over 65,000 visits in July. The domains are forwarded to various pages on LottoReport.com.
The Lotto Report said it bought LottoTexas.com and LottoTexas.net from their previous owner in 2008. They were active web sites before that, and The Lotto Report says it has maintained them by posting lotto results, rule changes, and news.
The Lotto Report had a chance to win the case, but was probably doomed because the web sites included links to the respondents paid subscription service. The respondent tried to argue that the subscription service was unsuccessful and winding down, but the panelist found this irrelevant.
Comments & Opinions by Dawn Nettles - www.lottoreport.com
I play the lottery and I lose every time I play - I generally taking losing as a part of life. I move on. I don't let any thing get me down. In the case of losing my domain names, when I make a final decision on what I plan to do - fight them or not fight them - I will be at peace.
I don't mind losing if it's a fair fight, but in this case, I don't feel as though it was fair. This is because the sole WIPO panelist, Roberto Americo Bianchi, who made the decision to give the TLC my domain names, made a mistake in his decision indicating to me that he didn't read or fully consider our response plus he has a track record of ruling in favor of big businesses. His decision came fast - too fast to have examined and considered all the documents he possessed.
Here is one of the mistakes found in his decision and the only one I can tell you about at this time ...
Notice that he emphasizes "after" (he didn't underline it in his decision, it was just italicized) - well ... the problem is we not only stated that I had been recognized as a "watchdog" since as early as 1999 in our response - which was long before I obtained lottotexas.com in Dec 2008 - but we also included 100 of 209 news stories for proof.
IF he had read our material carefully, he would have seen the vast majority of the news stories were regarding the game - Lotto Texas. What happened to common sense and reasoning? "watch dog" ... "lotto texas" ... "texas lottery"
IF he had truly read the news summaries, I don't believe the above statement would be found in his decision as it wasn't necessary since he states in the next paragraph that even if I had demonstrated that I was commonly called the Lotto Texas Watchdog, it wouldn't have made any differences to him.
So here is what I'm going to do for my lottotexas visitors. Because the domain name is in jeopardy, I am making it my home page at www.lottoreport.com. It will always be there and you can depend on having the results and payouts after every draw fast.
Just save the new address in your favorites. The Texas Lottery can't touch this domain name so it will be a safe and reliable site for all of you - www.lottoreport.com.
In case you are wondering why the Texas Lottery did this, it's because they don't want you to know the things I tell you.
Now go on and get your drawing results which is why you came here in the first place! Click here.
