Primary Blog/OnPoint Tax Relief/Lucky Day at the Casino? Don't Forget About the IRS

Winning big at the casino is undoubtedly thrilling, but it comes with tax responsibilities you shouldn't overlook. The IRS keeps a close eye on gambling winnings, and it's essential to understand the implications to avoid tax-related troubles down the line.

Here's what you need to know to stay on the right side of the IRS when luck is on your side:

1. Report All Winnings: Whether big or small, report all your gambling winnings to the IRS. Even smaller wins that don't require a W2-G form should be accurately reported. If you hit a substantial jackpot, inquire with casino staff about the issuance of tax forms.

2. Understand Withholding: Many casinos withhold a portion of significant jackpot wins for tax purposes. It's crucial to comprehend how and when this withholding occurs. If needed, you can request the casino to handle the withholding for you, ensuring you have funds available to cover your taxes.

3. Track Your Losses: While you can't avoid paying taxes on your winnings, you can deduct some losses to reduce your overall tax bill. Keep meticulous records of your losses, and some casinos offer reports detailing your expenditures and wins through loyalty cards.
