California lottery winnings are not subject to California income tax, but they are subject to federal income tax and to income tax in other states if the winner is not a California resident.

If you are a non-resident alien, they will withhold $7200.
If you are subject to backup withholding, $6720.
For everyone else, $6000.

Remember, the amount they withhold is not the actual amount of taxes that you owe on your winnings. That amount can only be determined when you fill out your Form 1040 at the end of the year. You may end up owing a lot more at the end of the year or getting a refund at the end of the year. In addition, if you are not a California resident, you may end up owing your home state a lot of money at the end of the year.
