The document is called a W-2G form and it lists the gross prize amount as well as any federal and state taxes that were withheld from the winnings. If you claimed multiple Iowa Lottery prizes of more than $600 in calendar year 2016, you’ll receive multiple W-2G forms from us, one for each prize claimed.
The W-2G forms must be mailed by Jan. 31, but we try to have them processed before then if possible.
If you think you should have received a W-2G form from us for calendar year 2016 and you've moved since the time that you claimed your prize, please let us know your new address as soon as possible. You can contact us at 515-725-7900 or email us at email@example.com. Be sure to include your name, old address, new address and phone number in case we need to contact you. If you don’t update your address with us, your W-2G form will likely end up where you used to live.
