Gambling Tax Recovery Services
Yaletown Accounting provides a withholding tax recovery service that specializes in U.S casino tax recovery for individuals who have had 30% of their winnings withheld by the IRS. We assist our clients in applying for their ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number), and filing their application for their casino tax refunds.
How it Works
1) Email us
2) Send us copies of your win slips and let us know about any win slips (1042-S) that you may have lost or misplaced. If you already have an ITIN, let us know too.
2) We will fill out the application forms on your behalf.
3) Wait for your refund to be sent directly from IRS!
We charge $50 for clients who need help with their W7 ITIN application and a flat rate of $250 for each yearly US casino tax refund filed.
It will be $300 for the whole package and there are no limitations to how many 1042-S win slip you have for a particular year.

Winnings from blackjack, roulette, craps, Big-6 Wheel, and baccarat are exempt from the gambling winning tax. Therefore, you cannot deduct losses from these games from your winnings in taxable games.
Your refund will be in US dollars. Your cheque will be sent to your address directly from the IRS after you mail in the package we have prepared for you.
Since gambling winnings taxes are reported and filed once a year, you will need to wait until the 1st of January in the following year to receive your US gambling tax refund. You may still send us your documents for a casino tax refund in prior to the start of the year. The sooner we receive your information, the sooner we can submit your application. Then we are able to process your file as quickly as possible after the turn of the year.
