Gambling Winnings

Only the Minnesota State Lottery is subject to Minnesota withholding tax requirements on gambling winnings. All other organizations are not required to withhold Minnesota tax on winnings, even if federal withholding is required. This applies to both cash and noncash prizes. 

Taxability of winnings

Gambling income ("winnings") is subject to state and federal income taxes. For more information on income tax obligations, see Minnesota Taxation of Gambling Winnings.
