If you win the lottery, you can choose to receive a lump sum payment, or you can take the payout in annuity payments. The lump sum payment will be less than the jackpot amount, and taxes are already taken out of it. Annuity payments, on the other hand, are paid over time and will rise with inflation. Annuity payments are also taxed less than the lump sum. However, they may be less than what you would receive if you won the lottery in a lump sum.
