Every year, about 40% of American adults visit at least one of the casinos that are located in Las Vegas, Nevada, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, or in one of the dozens of places in between, not to mention on the web. A lucky few take home a lot of money.

Gambling winnings are fully taxable, and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has ways of ensuring that it gets its share. Under current rules, gambling not only includes casino winnings, horse racing, and lotteries but also fantasy sports and online betting. Depending on whether the individual is a casual or professional gambler, the reporting requirements differ.
