  • Discuss the gifts that may be excluded from federal income tax.

Overview of the webinar

As more taxpayers engage in gambling activities in person and online, the failure to know the tax rules associated with such activities leaves the taxpayer vulnerable to tax penalties. This webinar introduces the tax professional to the tax rules for reporting the income derived from the various gambling activities (i.e., lotteries, casinos, online gambling, to name a few) and the penalties for failing to comply with the tax laws. In addition, we look at the taxation of gifts and awards received.

Who should attend?

CPAs, Enrolled Agents, Tax Preparers, Small accounting firms, Consultants, Individuals with a Record of Completion of the Annual filing Season Program, and any person actively engaged in gambling activities

Why should you attend?

If you are a small business constant or tax professionals providing tax services to individual taxpayers, you need to be aware of the rules associated with the reporting of income from in-person, online, and fantasy sports betting as more taxpayers are engaging in such taxable activities.
