    Yes unfortunately you do. I did however change the address on file with IRS to my own rather than theirs. They weren't too happy about that because the check got mailed to me instead of them....I sent them the agreed payment but made them wait a few weeks for it. I definitely thought about not paying them I won't lie but I felt it wasn't their fault Mlife properties didn't put my ITIN on my win slip and if I wasn't half in the bag I should have told them to put my ITIN on it.

    Wow- looks like they are really moving on 2015! I'm so excited at the thought I could possibly get something this year. Fingers crossed!

    Received our 2015 a few days ago. Was very surprised it came so soon.

    I just filed my 2015 and on one of my slips they put my player's card number instead of my ITIN. I put a note in with the return explaining that they'd made this error. Hope I'm not screwed!

    Sorry, newbie question on this, exactly how do you prove "losses have to be more than the amount withheld"?
    I have my win/loss report from Mlife:
    TOTAL ESTIMATED WIN(/LOSS)( $ 5,288.80 )
    My W-2G forms come to about $8k total.
    So, does that mean I will only get back $3k or $5k?

    Presuming all play factored in (w2g's into the win/loss) it would mean that after winning the 8K, you lost it and an additional $5200. (Don't worry, that's how many of us end up :)). The amount you would be trying to claim back would be the amount of taxes they withheld on the 8K wins- likely 30%, or $2400.

    If instead you were showing a profit of 5k, meaning you only lost 3 K of it back, then just that portion could be claimed on the taxes paid. In that example, it would be for 3k of wins eventually lost, or $900.

    Does that make sense?

    No good word on this yet? They can't just deny for the sake of saying no. Is that tax service giving any good suggestions?

    They've sped up bigtime. WheresMyFuckingRefund.com says my return has been approved and the cheque is to be mailed Sept 2. That was three weeks after I submitted it.

    Only one more to go, Quad Queen's 2012 return which hopefully will also show up - I sent them both together, but the website only tracks 2015 returns.

    Might as well update - a couple of weeks ago we called them about QQ's return - and they actually had it and said it should be processed over the next 2 weeks.

    So now I'm hanging around the mailbox, waiting.

    how early do you file your forms in ?
    I tend to follow Canada's tax date and file it at the same time but I am thinking if I should mail in earlier for a quicker refund ?

    Since some of the 2014 ones took a year and a half to process.... I would recommend filing as soon as is humanly possible.
