Tara bought her NY Powerball from this store - PHOTO
I'm not qualified to give legal advice to lottery winners. But what I can say is this: when YOU win big, don't put the check in your name.
When Tara Ramirez (center) won her New York Powerball prize last month, she did the right thing and formed a limited company - Case Park LLC.
By doing this she will be able to spend the funds without identifying herself personally (though appearing in a photo shoot is probably not the best start!)
