I have to say it's going to be super nice next year not having to worry about if I make over $600 at a big tournament and get a MISC-1099 later they will affect my tax return amount.
I'm actually really, really looking forward to not having that count against my return. :)
Ahhh, more benefits. :)
(And yes, I know you can claim the hotels and airfares and entry fees, but not for as many years as I have been doing so as an amateur)
