Name Research Problem.
Instructions Bruce Wilson won $3 million in the state lottery. The lottery pays out the prize money in 20 annual installments of $150,000 each.

Bruce’s tax return has been selected for audit by the IRS. Is he likely to prevail on his treatment of the $1.5 million sale of his future lottery payments as a long-term capital gain?
