Welcome to SDG Accountant LLC’s tax blog, where we unravel the complexities of tax considerations for individuals receiving 1099-G forms from their casino adventures. If you enjoy the excitement of the casino, it’s crucial to understand and manage the associated tax implications wisely.

1. Casino Log Book:

A meticulous casino logbook is your financial ally. Record the specifics of each gambling session—dates, times, wins, and losses. This log serves as a crucial document supporting your tax claims and offers transparency in the event of an IRS audit.

2. Letter from the Casino:

Request an official letter from the casino detailing your wins and losses. This documentation is invaluable for justifying reported figures to the IRS. Ensure it includes the casino’s contact information, your player card details, and an official statement.

3. Full Reporting of Winnings:

For those claiming losses, accurate reporting of full winnings is paramount. Incorrect reporting can trigger IRS scrutiny. SDG Accountant LLC ensures precise tax filings, reducing the risk of audits related to gambling activities.
