What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? MO
We had a consult with an attorney to see about filing bankruptcy due to amount of cc debt and me losing my job due to illness. As I was filling out the paperwork needed to file, I realized that I will have to show my separate checking account statements that show I have been gambling online. I did not think it was illegal because I was able to use my debit card. I have a few winnings 5000, 4500, that were transferred to my account. Searching the net I see now I am in big trouble, for gambling and not reporting as income. How much trouble am I in and will I go to prison? IRS? Should I just shoot myself now?? We were not behind on any bills when we talked to the attorney, we were planning ahead since my unemployment runs out in Dec and husbands income is not enough to cover all bills. I need advice urgently!
thank you for your help
