Are gambling losses tax deductible?
Yes, but only up to the amount of winnings the taxpayer has. For example, if a taxpayer had $100 of gambling losses and $80 of gambling winnings, then the taxpayer could only deduct up to $80 of losses. The taxpayer would not have any gambling winnings in gross income, and the remaining $20 of gambling losses would not be tax deductible.
