    When I was in Vegas last month I hit a handpay on a slot and as I'm from the UK the casino basically filled the paperwork in for me so I didn't have to pay tax.
    They then gave me a piece of paper to show them if I hit another so that they could process my winnings faster.

    My question is: Will this tax exemption form thing they gave me be good for my next trip in December?


    Thanks in advance.

    The Paperwork the Casino gave you will be no use for your next hand pay, that's just the receipt for your hand pay.

    The Casino will have applied for an ITIN number from the IRS on your behalf.

    The IRS will send a letter to your home address confirming your assigned ITIN number.

    Take that letter with you on your next trip and hand it over with your passport when you hit your next hand pay.

    Once the casino has this number all future hand pays will processed quicker.
