    I've never been asked for my ITIN when getting a jp payout. When I get a handpay (I had I think 9 this last year as I just filed)...they just use whatever info you've previously used for handpays..like long ago I gave them my driver's licence which sufficed. HOWEVER...I had changed addresses in Oct 2015. When I was playing at Bellagio in July I got 6 hand pays and although I had changed my address with Mlife, the hotel etc. etc...they gave me my FIRST 3 or 4 handpays with my PREVIOUS address. But I didn't notice until later (well it was like 2 am)...So I go to Mlife desk to tell them they have my address wrong,,and they confirm they HAVE my new address from Oct 15. They then tell me to go to HL where they print the 1042-S, to have THEM change my address in THEIR computer,,as even if you change it with MLife and the HOTEL, HL, doesn't have your new address...So i have 6 handpays from B, with 4 of them with my old address, which I'm sure is gonna screw up my return. I did include a letter explaining the difference in the 1042's, and the final two having my new address,,,I'm sure it's a snafu for getting a timely pay.

    Update from my neck of the woods- so a friend mailed his 2016 in a week before I did in January and the IRS website is telling him the usual BS story about refund won't be processed until six months after deadline (June 15) so basically December 2017 likely. For shits and giggles I logged on and shockingly it showed that my return has been processed and my refund was mailed Feb 10!! I can't believe they processed and mailed by cheque in less than a month!?!

    I'll report back when the mail arrives but suffice it to say I'm quite pleased. Why my friends got hung up and mine breezed through- not sure but I'll take it.

    For sure- mine is only $1,200 from a dollar royal last year. My friend's was over $6k so he was thinking same thing that maybe IRS put a hold on his as was more. I have nothing to go by one way or the other. My 2014 return was only $1,200 as well and that took forever to get back. I really feel for touche22 still being held hostage for 2014. That's completely ridiculous and those snivil serpants at IRS should be ashame.

    Has to be some way to write your parliament or whatever they call then in Canada? 3 years is absurd

    I Panicked today. Got a letter from IRS, not the BROWN envelope which usually has your cheque in it..thinking I was gonna be audited or something..(I really have NO reason,,I'm so clean)..but it was just a notification that I have to claim $57.62 in interest paid for 2016? Anyone else get this? IMG_1824.JPG

    I got the same. Total pain because my taxes were already prepared.

    The guy assigned to my 2014 file was to too busy to work on it so my file got dumped back into the group pool. Essentially, like starting all over again lol.
    I am going to be using the tax advocacy people at IRS at this point. What a bunch of B.S
    I was going to hold off on filing my 2016 but at this point I'm just going to do it anyway.

    This probably marks the end of my Vegas sojourns since I can't justify paying tax to gambol when I can do it tax free here.
    Good luck all.

    I got the same letter for a whopping $20 in interest they paid me last May for my 2014 return. Given that I've already filed my 2016 return before receiving this letter, they've processed it and mailed me my cheque (which showed up in mail yesterday whoo hoo!), I'm not 100% clear that this means anything. They were happy enough to process 2016 sans interest income, so i sure as hell don't plan on doing anything with that letter other than putting it in the garbage.
