Is tax rebate law applicable to Canadian citizens?

Hey Guys,
I'm from Canada, and last year I moved to the U.S. I'm a gambler, and I have won many games in Canada and the U.S. I love spending time at casinos with friends. It makes my day more cheerful. As you all know, 30% of the price amount will be deducted as tax, and only the rest will be given to us. It's actually the saddest part. But recently, one of the U.S friends told me that it's possible to get a refund of these deducted tax amounts. To know more in detail, I will be consulting a tax rebate service in Canada soon.
But before that, I would like to get suggestions from you guys. Is this law applicable to Canadian citizens?
Thanks!

    Yes, there is a way to reclaim at least some of the 30% that is withheld from Canadians. I know others have done it but I personally have not, so I can't speak to any specifics. Hopefully others that know more details will respond, but I do know it's possible.

    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.
  • Hello there. You need to get an I.T.I.N. individual taxpayer identification number

    https://www.irs.gov/individuals/individual-taxpayer-identification-number

    Once you have this you can simply submit a u.s. tax return for free or pay a company a percentage to get you your refund.

    Good luck.
