Am I still responsible for paying income tax on gambling winners?
You should consult with a tax professional with questions, but just because Twinspires is not reporting winnings to the IRS DOES NOT mean you’re not responsible for paying taxes on certain winnings.
Where I can view my W2G or Win/Loss Statements?
After clicking on your name at the top right of the website, you choose Tax Statements from the drop down menu. Here you will be able to search for either a Casino or Sportsbook W2G or create a Net Win/Loss Statement based on your date selection. (W2G’s will be mailed from us by the end of January each year)
