        The IRS has proposed that the tax threshold be lowered on all land based casino wins. The proposal would see single wins of $600 or more be taxed rather than the current limit of $1,200. This will result in your machine locking when you hit a single win of $600 or more and you'd have to claim it as income each year. Nothing is final yet and the issue will be discussed over the next 3 months.

        The casinos are being backed by the American Gaming Association, who views the proposal as unreasonable and unnecessary.

          It's outrageous that you pay taxes on your winnings as it is and  $600 is even more ridiculous.  I hope it fails.

          I hope that the discussion will result in keeping the $1,200 limit, and I think that's already too low anyway.

          Like we are not already taxed enough between the Federal and State level. The only good thing about that is it can end up being a wash at tax time by showing a loss statement  that can be obtained by each Casino.

          Seriously?  It's bad enough now at $1,200, but $600?  That is ridiculous.  At table games you can win up to $10,000 without being taxed.  And yes, we can write off losses up to winnings, but only for the IRS.  In Wisconsin you cannot take off your losses and I believe Illinois is the same.  Last year I had 16 signers at the casino and ended up paying $308.00 in state taxes even though I had taxes taken out of almost all the wins.

          What a joke!
