ITG FAQ #5 Answer-Is withholding required for gambling winnings of nonresident aliens?


Yes. In general, withhold at a rate of 30% on gambling proceeds won in the United States if that income isn’t effectively connected with a U.S. trade or business and isn’t exempted by treaty. Also, no withholding is required on nonbusiness gambling income from Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Roulette, or Big 6 Wheel.
