In the developed countries, the winnings on lottery attract some level of tax percentage because they believe that you will need to pay tax when you receive certain amount of winnings from the lottery.
In Canada, the lottery is considered to be a form of gambling, and as such, any winnings from the lottery are subject to taxation. Generally, the tax rate for lottery winnings in Canada ranges from 10% to 30%
Lotteries are considered tax free only in UK as per my knowledge and that is why any player who plays a lottery in any part of world have to pay the taxes on the winning this is very much the basic rule around the world
