Filing taxes not so painful when winning lottery ticket is found

Hugo Reyes declined to comment.

It’s that time of the year again when Americans break out the W-2s and 1040-EZs.  For most, it’s an expensive inconvenience.  For Irving Przyborski in Chicago, it was his lucky day.

Even luckier was the fact that the Illinois Lottery ticket was set to expire the following day, perhaps a lesson for chronic procrastinators everywhere.  The ticket – one of many he had bought, the rest being losers – had fallen into his tax folder only to be discovered as he prepared his tax return last week.

Przyborski claimed a lump sum prize of $9 million (before taxes, ironically) yet seemed ‘unfazed’ by the boon.  [Source; Image]
