PORTLAND -- If someone in Oregon has the winning $550 million Powerball ticket, they would take home about half after taxes if choosing the one-time payout, according to the Oregon State Lottery.
The state would get about $29 million of the take under that scenario.
A 30-year annuity for the winner would be about $12.3 million a year, with the state taking home about $1.5 million a year.
The busiest Oregon location for Powerball sales this year has been the Fred Meyer in Hillsboro at 22075 NW Imbie Drive. They've sold $126,000 worth of Powerball tickets through Nov. 17.
