w2g Gambling winnings offset by losses
My W-2 G gambling win is offset by losses. In deluxe version when I claim the loss amount As the same amount as the win it does not change my refund amount back to where it was before. Or at all for that matter. I keep reading about itemize deductions are required however when I change to itemized my refund is even less. TurboTax keeps recommending standard deduction. So it seems although I lost more money then I won I am not able to get my expected refund if I claim this W-2 G win.
