Make Your Voice Heard on Pari-Mutuel Tax Withholding

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association has set up an automated response form for horseplayers to send to the United States Treasury Department in support of proposed changes to tax withholding on pari-mutuel wagering, and we at HANA would like to encourage you to add your voice.

"With horse racing's all-important Triple Crown season fast approaching, the NTRA urges Treasury and the Service to adopt the proposed regulations as final regulations as soon as it is administratively feasible," said NTRA CEO Alex Waldrop. "Horseplayers, tracks and other industry stakeholders, including governments, are eager to begin reaping the benefits that will result from these updated withholding and reporting rules."

The form is available to fill out at https://www.ntra.com/comment/.  There are a few boxes to fill, such as name, city, and state, and is then an area to write your own message of support, or you can simply use what the NTRA has pre-filled it with.

Thanks for reading,

Your HANA Team
