The U.S. Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service have implemented new regulations (Nov, 2017) relating to the reporting and withholding of wagering proceeds. The key change of the new guidelines is the ENTIRE investment (stake) in a single pool on a single ticket shall be considered when determining the amount reported or withheld for tax purposes, as opposed to the base unit of the wager. These new guidelines help to simplify what wagers are considered reportable: any wager with proceeds over $5,000 AND has proceeds which are at least 300 times as large as the amount of the wager.
For example, a $1 base trifecta costing $56 will have to pay over $16,800 (56 mutiplied by 300) to require any withholding or reporting).
Some bank services may have monthly transaction limits or charge service fees. Consult with your bank's customer service representative to find out if additional fees are imposed.

The bet ticket below the runner selection shows you which horses you have selected as you build your bet, as well as the cost of the bet after each click. Once you are satisfied with you bet, and if you have the funds available in your account to cover the cost of the bet, select the "Place Bet Now" button below the bet ticket. A confirmation window will appear, and once you select "Submit Wager" your bet has been submitted.

Once your bet has been submitted, you can view it at the right of the bet ticket by selecting the "History" tab in the "Bet Queue".
