I won money from a casino in a different state than where I live. The casino sent me a W-2G Form. Do I have to file my gambling winnings in that state?
Yes. You must file a W-2G return in the state in which you are a non-resident and in which the casino is located and report your gambling winnings. You must also claim the winnings in your home state.
You might be able to claim a credit in your home state if you pay taxes to another state.

The IRS reduces or takes refunds (called refund offsets) for many reasons. If you received an IRS notice about a refund offset, learn what to do next.
All or a portion of your tax refund was taken to pay non-tax debt. Learn more about IRS letter 3179C from the tax experts at H&R Block.
You can file an extension for your taxes by filing Form 4868 with the IRS online or by mail. This must be done by the tax filing due date, typically April 15. Filing an extension for your taxes gives you an additional six months to prepare your return no matter the reason you need the extra time.
