New Hampshire Gambling Tax Moving Forward

It appears likely, but not certain, that New Hampshire will soon have a 10% tax on gambling winnings. The state legislature tentatively approved a new budget that contains the tax. It still must be approved by each house of the legislature and signed into law by the governor.

The tax itself is one of the worst for gamblers. It is a 10% tax on gross receipts, with no deductions allowed. It would impact both professional and amateur gamblers, and would make New Hampshire the worst location for gamblers to reside in the United States.

Key votes in the legislature will occur this week. I’ll keep you advised as I find out more information.
