So, for 2013 I had this all planned out and was heading for a refund of $80 and the year ended. Ready to submit my tax return. I just received an email from a Golf Tour that I play on each year, travelling the country and playing bad golf and having fun. They are looking for a W-9 to report my gift card winnings to the IRS. It would appear that my refund will now turn into a debt of some $300 (although I don't know what my winnings were - it appears that they are north of a $1,000 and this is in Gift Cards not cash!).

so my question is - is it too late to move to Canada? - No! that isn't my question -


MY question is whether 2013 was the first year you planned on underreporting your income.

For safe harbors see Publication 505.
