The Tax Man
I would like any imput here. I have been playing alot recently and seen some profits in cash games. Luckily, there is no paper trail so taxes are not a problem but I was considering using my poker expenses for tax deductions this year. A friend of mine hit a Bad Beat Jackpot and talked to his tax preparer and was told that you can get several deductions
53 cents per mile for travel
cost of any books
internet service (online play)
losses (that do not exceed winnings)
Can anyone confirm this and/or add to the list.
