Gambling/General : How to Recover Your US Gambling Tax

By Andrea Klein

Level: Jun 25th 2007
If you are a gambling fan and have been to Las Vegas or other US casino now you can recover your tax money. It’s well-known that US government has a policy to tax 30 percent of your winnings. Not only can those living within the US get their 30 % of the gambling winnings back, but so can foreigners.

Some procedures require a degree of consideration. First of all, to recover your US tax, you have to attain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).This takes around six weeks. After that, on the last day of every year, you must receive a “Win/Loss Statement for tax purposes”. Every casino you played at in the U.S.A. during the past year has to send you this file. You can recover the US tax up to three years back.

This program was created especially for Canadians, as US and Canada have signed a tax treaty, but other non-US living people may apply. Unfortunately the process takes a few weeks and may discourage some people to submit an application. In case you already possess an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, you will have to wait only 8 weeks, otherwise you may have to wait up to 18 weeks.

If you want to escape certain financial headaches aided by this application, there are professionals willing to do that for you in exchange of a well-deserved fee.

They can organize your documents, file your return request, obtain the checks, update you regularly and organize everything for you to receive it the way that suits you best. If it happens that they don’t manage to refund 30% of your gambling winnings, they won’t apply any charge for their services. So why not to try to get some more of your rightfully earned gambling winnings easy and risk free?

You can try it yourself, but you may end up losing your patience with all the documentation requested by the government and other financial institutions that will evaluate your file and decide upon your full or partial recovery of the US gambling winnings tax.

If you are among those who won significantly several times, you can probably recover a considerable sum out, up to several thousands of dollars.
