I have a friend who makes a decent amount of money gambling online. It’s not his only job, or anything, but he makes some good money playing poker and other skill games, and he uses it to buy nice things for his dorm room. I asked him recently if he pays taxes on the money he makes gambling, and he said no. Is that right? I assume you have to pay taxes on gambling money that you make in a physical casino--someone has to be paying taxes in that scenario, anyway, though I guess maybe it’s the casinos themselves--but what about online gambling? How does that work?
