Q) My husband won 14,000.00 at casino in Delaware we live in Md. Can he claim all the losing lotto tickets he has lost this year to wash out taxes owed for this 14,000.00 winning. Also what is the tax percentage to Maryland and Federal for tax withholding on this amount.
A) According o TurboTax.com
“Gambling losses are indeed tax deductible, but only to the extent of your winnings. … However, the deduction for your losses is only available if you are eligible to itemize your deductions. If you claim the standard deduction, then you can’t reduce your tax by your gambling losses.”
