Ireland to Tax Online Gaming
Legislation is set to be brought in to introduce licenses for overseas gambling operators to allow them to sell their products in Ireland , according to RTE. Taoiseach Brian Cowen has announced the Government will be taxing online gambling in all forms, he commented:
"This will have the additional benefit of facilitating the extension of the tax regime for the betting industry to all those providing online and telephone betting and so underpin funding for the racing industry. Such betting must be brought within the tax net, not just because it will increase revenue, but also because it will mean that those currently not contributing to securing the future of important indigenous industries will now make that contribution.”
