NO Amnesty For Unreported Internet Gambling Winnings


While the poker bloggers and newsletters, including that of the AGA are talking about new alliances being formed between big casino companies and offshore internet poker operators, there is little hope for the players who have won money on the sites and not reported the winnings.

Whatever deal, if any, that may get struck between the offshore operators, big casino companies and the state and federal regulators and prosecutors there is no one who will be speaking for the players. Players who won and did not report can expect that demands will be made for information about them as a condition of any deal approval. What information, you should expect the same type of information request as the IRS is now demanding of offshore banks, meaning, name, address, id number, and total deposits, total withdrawals, (by year) banking information (where was the money sent) and a bunch more. The IRS and state taxing agencies, may then filter by amount of activity (amount played and won) and audit accordingly.....
