Gambling New York Betting

In a landmark ruling, New Jersey gambling regulators have said that gambling winnings from bets placed on football and other professional sports events are taxable income.
The decision means that gamblers will have to pay a tax rate of 8 percent on gambling winnings in the state.
 
“It’s going to affect some people, but it shouldn’t be a big impact,” said Jay Kornegay, the sportsbook director for Westgate Las Vegas casino resort. “You have to be gambling at a place where they withhold taxes.”
 
New Jersey’s gambling winnings tax rate
 
New Jersey’s gambling winnings tax rate is among the highest in the United States at 8 percent, behind only Pennsylvania and Washington State, which levy gambling winning tax of 13 percent and 10 percent respectively. New York remains one of five states that doesn’t impose a gambling-winning tax on residents or non-residents alike.
 
 
“It’s similar to somebody who makes money through salaries and dividends,” said Paul Josephson, an attorney with Lowenstein Sandler PC whose clients include gambling industry operators. “Different people get different tax treatment on how they make their income.”
Josephson said that New Jersey gambling operators were not permitted to withhold gambling taxes on gambling wins, but the new ruling means visitors who won at gambling tables and machines will be responsible for filing a tax return. “It puts another aspect of gambling out there,” he said. “Now there’s this additional thing to think about.”
 
The new ruling comes on the heels of a landmark US Supreme Court gambling winnings decision earlier this month. In Murphy vs. NCAA, the court held that PASPA, which prohibits states from authorizing gambling schemes that are contrary to state law, violated anti-commandeering rules established in Printz v. the United States.
 
PASPA is similar to New York’s 1992 gambling law called the Bradley Act after former Gov. Mario Cuomo pushed for statewide gambling bans at race tracks and Off-Track Betting Corp.(OTB) parlors. The ban made any gambling scheme outside of gambling permitted by Indian tribes legal only if authorized by a constitutional amendment approved by voters statewide or by referendum authorized by state lawmakers.
 
Neither method has ever been used.
