I don't normally play slots or VP, more pit and NLH 4-5days a week at my local card room. However this year I was lucky enough to get 3 1099's in the few slot/vp sessions I have played . None are very large the biggest being a RF on VP for $4582.00 (Progressive I guess as I thought they paid $4000.00 on a $1 machine) Anyway, wondering what people's thoughts on taxes, do you request the taxes be taken out at the time of winning the jackpot, or do you take the full amount and offset your loss and tax time, if you offset your loss you can only claim a loss up to the amount of the jackpots right? I won a bad beat jackpot 15years ago for 32k but don't remember how I went about the taxes nor can I locate the paperwork. Anyone have any tips they might be willing to share, yes I have time yes I could ask a tax professional (I will also do that) however I don't have a professional gambling tax wiz guy and would love insight. Thank you in advance.
