Default 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!)

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.
