Hi, Ed. Really relevant conversation. To clarify one point, lottery tickets in Iowa are not subject to the sales tax, so that is not involved in the purchase of our product here.

Lottery winnings should not be taxed. This is not earned income, it is winnings. This is double taxation. We pay sales tax when we purchase a ticket. It's time to stop double taxing for lottery and gaming winnings.
