Taxes in NZ
Usually, after the successful winnings you will be presented with funny music and flashing lights. However, we need to know whether the gamblers should pay taxes or not. Take into account that the taxation process depends on the particular country. For example, in the US, if the winnings are more than 1200$ you have to make a report. Moreover, you have to prove the identification information of your age and passport. So, in the US you have to pay tax up to 25% depending on the certain game. However, in Canada or New Zealand, there are taxes free. In fact, New Zealander have to pay income tax, but it’s very unusual for winnings to be taxed.
The declarations of your winnings are required in few countries, including the US. However New Zealanders can play for money and win a lot without any taxation from the government.
