U.S. Casino Tax Refund Services
The IRS will not voluntarily issue your casino tax refund. You must start the process. Simply filing the required forms to obtain your casino tax refund is often times not enough. In fact, submitting an incomplete or inaccurate return can significantly delay your refund. Negotiating with the IRS during the gambling tax refund recovery process requires an in depth understanding of the IRS’s practices and procedures as well as the substantive gambling winnings and gambling loss record-keeping requirements.
Columbus tax attorney Matthew R. Porter has in depth experience negotiating with the IRS to recover frozen refunds of the gambling winnings tax. The IRS may freeze your gambling tax refund and require you to substantiate (prove) your gambling losses.
Release of Frozen Gambling Tax Refund
In a representative case, Mr. Porter assisted with obtaining the release of a gambling tax refund of approximately $2M. The IRS had frozen the refund and audited the taxpayer. Specifically, the IRS requested that the taxpayer prove gambling losses. The company that assisted the taxpayer with filing the Form 1040NR obtained the ITIN and filed Form 1040NR for the taxpayer, but did not perform its legal due diligence. Mr. Porter assembled detailed documentation of the taxpayer’s gambling losses. After providing the IRS with the gambling loss documentation and legal arguments in favor of releasing the frozen refund, the IRS released 100% of the gambling taxes reported on the taxpayer’s Form 1040NR.
