I’ve been betting on sports in the U.S. for quite a while now. Despite the fact that I’m not a citizen or resident, I’ve come to understand that I still need to report my gambling earnings to the IRS. I am unsure, however, about which specific form I should utilize as a foreign gambler to file my winnings. Can someone with expertise or experience in this area provide some guidance?
To give a clearer picture, I’m from Canada, but I often visit Las Vegas. During these visits, sports betting is a recreational activity I enjoy partaking in. I’ve had a few decent wins and have over $10,000 to report this year. I want to ensure everything is reported correctly and legally. What documentation or form is needed for me as a non-resident to handle this reporting process?
