    Congratulation on your windfall. That windfall will put you in the 35-38 % tax bracket meaning your tax with holding should be $350000 to $380000. If they took only took out $110000 you will owe IRS another $24000 to $270000 when you file 2022 taxes. You need to immediately contact a tax lawyer or a good tax accountant. Still after all taxes are paid you will still have over $600000 to play with. Not a shabby payout. Good Luck!!!
