Gambling Income and Expenses - TaxesWritten by Richard A. Chapo
Hit a big one? With more and more gambling establishments, keep in mind IRS requires people to report all gambling winnings as income on their tax return.
Gambling income includes, but is not limited to, winnings from lotteries, raffles, horse and dog races and casinos. Unfortunately, gambling income also includes fair market value of prizes such as cars, houses, trips or other non-cash prizes.
Generally, if you receive $600 ($1,200 from bingo and slot machines and $1,500 from keno) or more in gambling winnings and your winnings are at least 300 times amount of wager, payer is required to issue you a Form W-2G. If you have won more than $5,000, payer may be required to withhold 25 percent of proceeds for Federal income tax. However, if you did not provide your Social Security number to payer, amount withheld will be 28 percent.
