Review of Betting Tax in Ireland by Department of Finance

The Irish Government Department of Finance Publishes Details of Proposed Review of the Irish Betting Tax Regime

Review of Betting Tax in Ireland by Department of FinanceA betting tax review is being looked at, and acted on by the Irish Government Department of Finance after the commitment by Oireachtas, Minister of State, Eoghan Murphy discussed and included it in the Finance Bill 2016. The proposed steps are part of the Tax Strategy Group 2017.

The review will mainly focus on the betting tax regime of 2015. It will also focus on what type of impact it will have with a rate increase of betting duty on Exchequer revenues.  It will also cover the bookmaker industry, and not just sections of the sector, but as a whole including trades in the market and the remote (online) sector.

Submissions are invited on several aspects of the current tax system. Specifically welcomed submissions include the appropriative levels of the equivalent and betting taxes on betting exchange commissions, is the current turnover tax model approached differently with betting exchanges at the same time in the industry and what would the impact have if there was a tax that would tax the punter instead of the bookmaker?

So many questions and ideas that the Irish Government Department of Finance is encouraging submissions before they finalize the review.

Bill H271 Passed, But Faces High Tax Rate for Gambling Industry

May 24, 2017 · Filed Under Online Gambling Laws, Online Gambling News 

There’s Good and Bad News for Online Gambling in Pennsylvania

Good and bad news for online gambling in Pennsylvania surfaced today. The good news first! The online gambling bill to legalize and regulate casino and online poker activities passed the Senate committees this afternoon, Tuesday, May 23rd. Bill H271 was a shell for gaming reform in the state, but with the provisions including online gambling, it’s no longer a shell it’s a bill that the state has been waiting patiently for, for approval.

The Senate Community, Economic and Recreational Development Committee voted 11-3 to forward the bill. It also got the approval and moved right along through the Senate Appropriations Committee the same day.

And, we have the bad news up next! The bad news connected to this bill is that there is a very high tax rate attached to it. The tax rate is so high it threatens the online gambling industry in the state. It’s the highest so far for any regulated online market.

Some of the provisions and high tax rate examples included in the bill. Online slot machines and table games will be taxed at a 54% rate. Online poker will be taxed at 16% for all revenues.

Looks Like Trouble for Paysafe Group Plc in Turkey

May 23, 2017 · Filed Under Gambler's Report, Online Gambling News 

Turkey Implements Strict Laws Governing its Payment Processing Industry with Severe Penalties

Recent reports confirm there is trouble for the Paysafe Group Plc in Turkey. With Turkey’s new strict laws governing the industry’s payment processing, there will be severe penalties and punishment for non-compliance. The strict penalties include three to five years of imprisonment.

The Paysafe Group has filed a grievance regarding the regulatory laws saying it only operators and a minimal in the country and that they focus only on servicing video game operators who utilize their products via a “Limited Network Exemption”, but is this true? There have been around 38 online gambling websites discovered that advertise the payment processors products including Ukash, NETeller, Skrill and the Paysafe Card.

Now, if you remember sometime two years ago that Paysafe claimed and reported to have shut Ukash down? This isn’t true, there have been confirmations of the company offering its Ukash product with Turkish players and online gambling operators.

Turkey is strict and serious with their enforcements of online gambling laws and regulations. Government officials along with gaming authorities are seeking out the leaders and head of operations in the UK that continue to target Turkish players. The penalties and consequences aren’t worth the trouble in the region.

Alabama Regulation Bill H 354 Won’t Happen, No DFS in State

May 22, 2017 · Filed Under Daily Fantasy Sports, Online Gambling News 

Daily Fantasy Sports in Alabama Isn’t Going to Happen Anytime Soon as State Denies New Bill

Alabama Regulation Bill H 354 Won't Happen, No DFS in StateUnfortunately for Alabama X doesn’t mark the spot for Daily Fantasy Sports activities approval. Unfortunately, Friday night the State’s Legislature denied legislation of activities with the DFS bill being stuck in Senate now for an indefinite time.

Bill H 354 didn’t have time to make it through all the necessary channels to get approved. It made it through the state House after some debate, it passed by a thin margin, but was the last subject to be discussed last Wednesday along with some amendments. This is as far as it will go with no vote being held on the matter when legislature adjourned last week.

This isn’t the news observers wanted to hear! It’s been noted that there may be a special session sometime in the near future, but it’s not promising that the DFS proposal would be on that agenda. If it doesn’t follow through this makes it the second time it’s been a big fail with defeat with both attempts.

Observers are speculating that lawmakers were influenced for the second year in a row by Luther Strange, State Attorney General. Strange’s opinion on DFS activities being illegal and considered gambling with the current laws in the state may be the reason why the proposal keeps getting pushed to the side.
