Hi Everyone, This question is for the Slot players. I'm from Canada and we do not pay taxes on lottery winnings, however, when I get a hand pay in Vegas, I'm required to file a US income tax return to get back my 30% that was withheld. And, I'm charged 25% of my withheld amount from the company that does this for me. Here is my question. I noticed on my last trip in January that the person sitting next to me from California got a couple of hand pays and all the attendants did is remove her players card and paid her. She was not asked for ID. When I got a hand pay, they did the same. No ID and they came to pay me minus of course the 30%. It is just a pain in the ass to get the money back and I have to wait for the 2013 calendar year to finish in order to get back my 30% that was withheld in January 2013. Do your hand pays require id? Or, just your mlife card is sufficient? I'm asking this because if that is the case, I'll just change my address on my account to reflect my cousin's US address. Thanks in advance for you responses and your help!!!
