Hi, Im in Vegas right now staying Downtown and on Thursday night i hit for a handpay of $1500. Ther slot assistant and her boss were adamant that they had to take off 30% for tax which they did. Im sure i read, (could be way off) that as a foreigner i was exempt from US tax on slot winnings?? I went to casino marketing earlier today and they didn't have much idea but sent me in the direction of the IRS building just behind Main Street Station. After standing in line for ages (great way to spend my vacation huh) i eventually got seen by some young girl who also never had much idea. Anyway she gave me a W-7 form to fill in so i can get a ITIN number that i need to fill in and send off somewhere, it doesn't even say where?? Is this standard procedure for this situation or should they have paid me the full amount? Cheers.
