If you take it out in small enough sums over a long enough period, it's not extremely likely to get noticed. That said...yes, legally, you have to pay taxes on it.

Most people try not to drawl online, but if you want to, go for it!

The IRS really doesn't care that much. They just want you to pay your taxes. As for the legality of online poker in the US, that's murky right now, but your chances of being found out and prosecuted are really really really tiny.

So how do the "pros" make money that they can have in they're bank accounts to pay bills?

Dunno, maybe the tellers can understand their non-Southern accents?

Just a note, you technically should pay taxes on your gross winnings (sum of all winnings) and deduct your gross losings (sum of all losings) as an itemized deduction. So just declaring 5000 probably isn't correct (unless you always win, in which case never mind) and could potentially get you in trouble. But I'm not in any sense of the word a tax professional, so you should probably check with one next year when you do your taxes in case I'm totally wrong.

LOL. Well, for starters you can always withdrawal the funds "legally" but you have to pay taxes on any winnings. So legally you can withdraw them, but you then you would also legally have to claim them...Of course, claim your losses as well.

Supposedly $10k is the cutoff mark for "flagging". That said, I've heard rumors that they'll flag smaller periodic sums than that. I've never taken out more than $4k at a time, but I report my earnings/losses for taxes.

Yes sir you are correct. $10,000.01 and over must be reported, by law, to the IRS from any financial institution. It is called a CTR report. (Currency transaction report)
