Toros why the hell would it not be taxable? Are you stupid? Every dollar that goes into your checking account is taxable.

In most countries it's not taxable, I think only in the US it's taxable. USA sucks.

Not everything deposited in to your bank is taxable. If it is deposited into a personal bank account it shouldn't be a problem. Just don't deposit it into a business account.

If it's not on a W-2 or a type of 1099, it's not income so it isn't taxable.

Don't listen to these idiots.  Better hope you don't get audited, because you'll have to explain away every single one of those $2500 checks you deposit into your account

Dude, this forum is called "Gaming Industry - US".  So stop posting misinformation in this forum unless you preface it with "Well, in Canada...." which you did not.  U.S. forum with U.S. questions, and what should be U.S. answers. 

 Nobody gives a garbage what is taxable where you live.

What makes people think they dont have to pay taxes or claim winnings on sports gambling but when you win the lotto or win big at a casino you have to claim all that.  Betting sports online is no different.  Of course you claim your winnings on your taxes.  Now if its just couple hundred dollars i wouldnt worry too much.  But when your talking bout a grand or couple grand a month, it will soon start throwing up red flags to the auditors, and like Bling said.  Your going to have to explain where the $$'s came from.  Thats why they call it "INCOME TAX".  Whatever you bring in is taxed.

Bling- You sound like you of those people that listen to the government and would claim ten dollars on your tax return if you won it on a scratch off lottery ticket. The US is a third world ghetto country and everyone should ignore and darn the government every chance they get.

Difference between online sports gambling and winning the Lotto is the organization for the Lotto or any other winnings will report your winning by issuing you some form of 1099 or W2. Besides what sort of income would you report it as?
