Are poker winnings taxable?
It all depends on which country you are from. While some governments prohibit gambling, including poker, others have chosen to legalize it with taxes on winnings. More often than not, the task of paying taxes is taken care of by the online casino operator. This may take the form of transaction fees when withdrawing winnings. In addition, in some countries, only the winnings of those qualifying as professional players (i.e. players who have gambling as their main source of income) are taxed. We recommend that you investigate the tax laws in your country so that you know whether and which taxes you have to pay.
