Would this money have come from inheriting it under someone's will? If so, it is not taxable at all for Federal or state income tax purposes. If it is a prize, it will be added to your other income and taxed probably at the maximum tax rate which is for 2006 35%. If this money comes by way of a gift to you, that also is not taxable income. If it is taxable, the tax only on that amount would be $192,500. As I said, though, your other income would be added to that before the tax was calculated.
