Legal Concerns with Private Money League

Postby TailbackU » Sat Jan 14, 2006 12:08 pm

I have started a couple small fee entry money leagues and have neither received nor paid out any money yet. However, I want to make sure there are no legal ramifications. Are you guys aware of any problems or issues I may run into? It's looking like it may be something like 24 teams with an average of $40 per team. We're looking at somewhere in the neighborhood of $1000 paid out in prizes. Everything paid in will be paid out. Is there an IRS limit on this stuff, etc? I've posted the league on a lot of forums so I want to make sure I follow the law. If anyone out there can help me with some info I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

state laws vary but in general as long as you are not keeping any $ for "the house" then it is no different than your saturday night kitchen table poker game
