Frequently Asked Questions

If you need any additional questions answered, feel free to email us or call us, toll-free, at 1-888-272-5559.

Are Exemptions From Gambling Tax, Canadian Only?

You are eligible if you are a non-US resident. You must also be able to prove that you were a non-resident of the US at the time of your win. Call or email us and we will let you know if you are entitled to recover the funds deducted from your win.

After Winning How Much Time Do I Have To Get A Refund?

The IRS has implemented a three-year filing rule. This rule allows one to go back three years to obtain a refund. Taxes on winnings prior to this period are statute-barred from any recovery. Most of our clients make their claim within days of returning back home. If you have won in the current year, refunds will be claimed at the beginning of the following taxation year.

How Long Will It Take For Me To Get My Money Back?

The process can take a minimum of one year to receive the funds from the time we file.

What Documents Are Needed to Make a Claim?

There are 3 different acceptable forms of certified identification. If you are using a passport, it can stand alone. If you are using a driver’s license, you will need one other form of ID such as a birth certificate. We, as agents of the IRS, can help certify your I.D. Please inquire further as to how we can assist with this and make the process much easier for you.

What Can Help Reduce The Taxation On Winnings?

Canada entered into a treaty with the US in 1996 whereby specific gaming losses can be applied against winnings to reduce or eliminate taxes on gambling winnings. The IRS expects losses to be substantiated by a win/loss statement, proper record-keeping and/or acceptable receipts.
