a giant toke. a bunch of years ago, i was playing the (then) s.d. game at the upper level, circus pit. next to "my" *table* [it was a table game], was an early carnival game. there was a lot of commotion. i leaned over and asked a player, "what's up" ? he said he'd just made a royal flush and had won something around $150k. that lasted most of an hour since his wife was on the third trip back to the room searching for addition "i.d.".


if what you have stated is fact, with your help, they wouldn't have withheld federal taxes on that windfall. even the cheapest punter would have toked you well, if you could have proven to the licensee that winnings on "table games were exempt".


as to a refund of property taxes for u.s. public schools (as differentiated from u.k.

but as a cpa, you must have known that.
