FanDuel Registrations FAQ
Here is a list of frequently asked questions, in case you have any lingering uncertainties. You can also visit the mobile app or desktop site to access their customer service info or other helpful tips.
Do I have to pay taxes on my winnings?
Yes. When betting with the FanDuel app or any other sportsbook or casino, you should be prepared to report your winnings to the IRS. When betting with 300 to 1 odds, if you win more than $600, FanDuel will automatically send you a W2-G form to report your earnings. A copy of this form is also sent directly to the IRS.
If you win more than $5,000 at 300 to 1 odds, 25% of your payout will be withheld and sent to the IRS in your name. You will also receive a W2-G form and will have to properly file to avoid any tax issues. If you have high earnings, it’s probably best to consult an accountant to make sure you’re in full compliance with your state’s tax laws.

How do I cash out my bet?
FanDuel offers a cash out option that allows bettors to settle a bet for a certain value before the event is finished. You will know if your bet is eligible to cash out early because it will have a “Cash Out Value” option. To find the value, simply navigate to your betslip on the “Active Bets” tab.
Once you open the “Active Bets” tab you will be able to see all bets eligible for cash out. When you click “Cash Out” you will be prompted to confirm this is what you wish to do. Once confirmed, the traders will review and decide whether to accept your request.
Please note, cash out cannot be reversed and bettors need to be located in the state where they placed their bets to cash out.
