Indiana Department of Revenue Assesses Additional Income Tax on Gambling Couple

An Indiana married couple was recently assessed additional tax when the Indiana Department of Revenue determined that they did not qualify as professional gamblers. The State’s assessment is a result of a Federal adjustment. Professional gamblers report their winnings, losses, and expenses on Schedule C, which typically results in a lower income tax liability. The IRS’s denial of the taxpayer’s protest of their categorization as casual gamblers was adopted by the State without further analysis.
