    Very helpful DB and Kevin. Almost every CPA I talk to want to label DFS as gambling winnings and losses.


    Man I hope he didnt play the guys he liked. He wasnt big on Ovechkin and hes the only one who scored that he mentioned. Tarasenko and Steen duds. Voracek and Giroux duds.

    very good questions being asked here…almost like you have experienced all the possible tax situations yourself :)

    kinda hard to hear kevin with the muffled sound, but worth putting your ear to the speaker for a few minutes to get a few tax nuggets.

    I think he said no netting of the 1099’s (win from fanduel and loss from draft kings)…if you can take itemized deductions on taxes? no big deal…if you can’t it might be best to continue your losses on fanduel for netting purposes before the year ends (that means paying attn before the year ends)

    other gambling losses from casinos and elsewhere should be accounted for also in itemizing to extent of winnings…just in case this was not emphasized?

    IRS matching was another highlight on this…make sure you do or a letter comes your way pretty quick.

    schedule c? that is a long conversation, but SE tax is not the end all be all in the decision making…they are mostly mitigated by all the things that are possible…notwithstanding someone over the soc. sec. max. talking about part time fantasy winners with a full time job.
