Pennsylvania 2013: Gambling Losses

Pennsylvania residents must report gambling and lottery winnings and losses from all sources, whether receiving a Federal Form W-2G or not.

Certain customers who reported gambling winnings and losses may have filed an incorrect state tax return.

TurboTax has fixed this issue.

How to tell if you may be impacted

You may be affected if all of the following apply to you:

  • You filed your Pennsylvania state tax return prior February 20, 2014 AND
  • You filed Married Filing Joint return AND
  • Only your spouse reported gambling winnings AND losses AND
  • Those losses were not included on PA Schedule J/T, Line 4.

To amend your return:

  • Follow these step-by-step instructions.
  • After you make the changes to your tax return, you will need to mail a copy of your amended state return.
