Gambling Winnings
 
I was the lucky guy on the Prinsendam to win a Jackpot. Wow!...paid for my cruise and then some. That was the good news....

The bad news was:

I won on the second day of a 2 week voyage. Just TRY and stay away from the casino for the remainder of the trip!

I got my W-2G from Carnival a few weeks ago and Uncle Sam is well aware of my good fortune!

Ah well...still plenty left to pay for a few more cruises. Leaving on Veendam 3/13!


Good Luck! (and good recordkeeping!)

Is the ship reg. in the US is that why you got 1099?????
When we won over 3000.00 on celb, last year we did not get a 1099.

Nope, the Prinsendam is registered in the Netherlands.

I was on an Alaskan itinerary at the time. The casino Manager informed me that any winnings over $1300 required a W-2G issued by Carnival Cruise Casino. Interesting point though...was it only because we were in Alaskan waters? Or perhaps it is a policy of Carnival (HAL parent company & casino operator).

Anyone else experience this good fortune?

Yupper!

Paid for that cruise and the one I leave on Saturday! (and one I have yet to plan for late summer) Maybe I am a winner, but likely this has just increased the opportunities to give it back!

Good Luck Chuck! (Yikes...that sounds like a cheesy screen name :o)

Hopefully you already itemize your deductions on your taxes. When you itemize, you can deduct gambling losses up to the amount of your winnings. I'm not a tax expert, but if you won a couple thousand, I would deduct the whole amount. I can't see anyone at the IRS not believing that someone would have a couple thousand in losses to offset winnings. If it was more than a few thousand, that gets tricky.

If you take a standard deduction on your taxes, then you wouldn't be itemizing in order to deduct your losses.

My husband won $4,000 on a poker machine last year on Carnival, Destiny. He got a W2-G. We had to claim it on our taxes this year.
