The tax filing would be after January 1st and before April 15th in the year following your winning. If you won in 2016 you would file in Jan - April of 2017. If your winnings were in 2015 then yes you can file still.

If you expect to owe you can make an estimated payment prior to filing but you cannot file until the time opens for the year the income is received.

You are required to rate in a positive way (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES) if I am to be credited with responding.
