Questions & Answers

Should I report Gambling and Lottery Winnings?

Gambling and lottery winnings include all of the following, unless received as a noncash prize from the Pennsylvania Lottery:

  • Cash
  • The value of property (automobiles, jewelry, electronic devices, appliances, clothes, etc.)
  • The value of the use of property (trips, vacations, airline tickets, cruises, etc.)
  • Other items of value
For Pennsylvania residents (or during the time you were a resident), all gambling and lottery winnings from any source are taxable on your Pennsylvania return. While a resident, you must include lottery winnings from other states and countries.

For nonresidents, all gambling and lottery winnings from Pennsylvania sources are taxable on your return.
