In general, if you owe taxes on gambling winnings in CAD, you probably 'technically' owe them in bitcoin. With that being said, nobody knows about your gambling winnings (except the site you're gambling on) until you move that money to fiat currency.

You have to pay income tax if you exchange BTC to fiat. Obviously you can deduct the amount of fiat exchanged to BTC, so you pay tax from fiat profit

I remember as of a few years ago, there was no income tax for amateur gamblers, right? Should probably consult a tax professional. But my logic tells me -- no tax on winnings, but there is tax on the capital gains while holding your coins. No idea, though -- not advising anyone.

From what I understand there is no tax on Gambling winnings in Canada unless you are a professional/business.

how?

Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, look in the lower left corner.  There should be a "move topic" link.

vendetahome gave the definitive answer for this thread for now.  Until CAD and other governments start taking bitcoin for the payment of debts, they'll be treated like securities--not taxable until liquidated. This is not going to happen for a long time, unless international financial markets crash big time.

Well I'm pretty sure it's only the people with an official license that have to pay the taxes.  I'm not sure about the gamblers, I doubt they would pay if they could get away with it.

Not unless you want to, that's my opinion.  It's not like they'll search every BTC address.

I don't think he's asking what he can get away with doing without getting caught.  I think he's asking what the requirements of the law are.
