8,467,091 | IRS rakes in on November Nine

2015 November Nine

Turns out Joseph McKeehen wasn’t the biggest winner in the WSOP Main Event after all …

According to a report on TaxableTalk.com, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collected over $8.4M USD in taxes from members of the November Nine, including $3.3M from McKeehen, who saw his $7.6M payday reduced to $4.3M when all was said and done.

One man unaffected by the tax man was Belgian Pierre Neuville, who finished in 7th position. Belgium has a tax treaty with the US that allows its residents to not be taxed on their winnings.
