Claiming back your Withholding Tax

With the World Series of Poker (WSOP) only days away, this is a very popular time for Canadians to make their way to Las Vegas and jump into the massive pool of tournament action.  Along with the WSOP at the Rio, there is also the Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza, Caesar’s Palace Mega Stack Series, Wynn Poker Classic, Golden Nugget Grand Series, plus a few other smaller poker tournament series.  Now if you are lucky enough to cash in any of these tournaments, you will most likely be subject to a 30% withholding tax.  The minimum amount cashed before a withholding tax is applied to differs from casino to casino, so it is best to check with the pit bosses before you start playing.

Though all is not lost in regards to the 30% gambling withholding tax.  A company called RMS (previously Refund Management Systems) can assist you in the recovery of taxes on US gaming wins.  They are the most reputable casino and gaming tax recovery service in the industry.  Headquartered in Toronto, and with additional offices in Vancouver and Las Vegas, the staff of qualified accountants will help you get your money back!
