We know there are sites where you can play numbers in other states. For some people it's a blessing, for others, it can drain you financially.

My question is, would you pay a 5% sales tax on BETS, not winnings, if you were able to play in all sates that have numbers games?

    I don't understand the question. I can play online right now without paying taxes on bets, so why would I intentionally pay taxes?

    Maybe I'm missing something here....lol

      Yes, I would like to play online and think they might let us if they can figure out how to tax us.

        Tax: I John,

        Giving them ideas are we?

        Why would they settle for 5% Sales Tax when their intentions is to Tax the Winnings?

        Sales Tax on a $10 Bet=$.50

        Income Tax on a $900 Win=$225

        A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

          NO. Not only NO but NFW NO.

          When river boat casinos came to the South and Midwest people were being charged some ridiculous "boarding fees." It started out on some boats as $5 or $10 on weekdays and $15 or $25 on weekends.

          To pay a fee to stand in line and wait to enter a casino to gamble was insanity. Evereybody should have just refused to pay such fees, but it shows how bad they wanted to play.

          To pay a tax to play would fall under the same category. What would it be called, an "out-of-state tuition tax on lotto"?

          The only pre-bet tax that makes any sense is what the Australians do, a ticket is $1.03 or $1.10 AUSD and the winners don't pay any taxes.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              Nope, they'll be getting enough confiscating "their share" of the winnings when they"allow" us to play online.

              The whole concept is outrageous at its core.

                    I agree Rosie, if they keep taxing our clothes and underwear so much we might have to join nudist colonies.

                    Which one will you be at? I'll meet you there.

                              PS  tiggs also lived in hot Fla and carried mail out in the sun for 20 years and maybe that's what's wrong with tiggs..tiggs sees your from Fla so you just might have a sun problem too..tiggs is just saying..
