Santa Anita Park reserves the right to interpret all questions and conditions regarding this promotion, without claim for damages or recourse of any kind. All questions not covered in these rules will be decided by the management of Santa Anita Park.
Box 3. Generally, report this amount on the “Other income” line of Form 1040 (or Form 1040NR) and identify the payment. The amount shown may be payments received as the beneficiary of a deceased employee, prizes, awards, taxable damages, Indian gaming profits, or other taxable income. See Pub. 525. If it is trade or business income, report this amount on Schedule C or F (Form 1040).
We know the P6 bonus will be taxable but do we know if the winners will be able to write off losses to the extent of their winnings paid as a prize on a 1099-MISC? And if they can't then does Santa Anita have an obligation to tell the players that?
If not then that would be another deterrent for going to Santa Anita to play this wager.
Prizes and awards. If you win a prize in a lucky number drawing, television or radio quiz program, beauty contest, or other event, you must include it in your income. For example, if you win a $50 prize in a photography contest, you must report this income on Form 1040, line 21. If you refuse to accept a prize, do not include its value in your income. Prizes and awards in goods or services must be included in your income at their fair market value.
Calling a pig a chicken doesn't make it a chicken. A taxpayer would be on firm ground putting the bonus in with their gambling income and writing off losses against it.
I also believe that a winner who is part of a group could file a Form 5754 and divide the bonus amongst the group.
Sarcasm:the ability to insult idiots without them realizing it
Forgive the dumb questions Andy but here is another one. If Santa Anita is able to pay the bonus as prize money or as an advertising expense and write that off would what you have written above still be true? The reason I'm asking is that when this all started a few months back it was thought that the prize money couldn't be written off. What would be the difference if they just added the bonus on the signer at the window? Or is there no difference other than the winner could be subject to withholding under certain circumstances (like 6 paying $4200 and having the bonus put you into withholding)?
One must be on track to get this, how many real player really play in person, how s are really there when place the bet.
