Buenos Aires seems set to impose further gambling taxes

November 5 2018: Yogonet reports on an interview by the Buenos Aires Province Governor, María Eugenia Vidal in which she reaffirms her position with respect to illegal gambling.  When she took office, she pledged to prevent the gaming industry from growing.  

'In an interview granted to the TV show Ya somos grandes, broadcasted last Thursday by the Argentine channel TN, she confirmed something that was then considered to be just a rumor: The head of the Ministry of Economy, Hernán Lacunza is working on a proposal which will be submitted Monday, to increase gambling taxes.

'“I am against illegal gaming, and everything I have done in the Province has gone in that line, for instance, the gross income tax rise. “We have already increased taxes, we can do it once more. We are working together with the Ministry of Economy on a proposal to elevate gambling taxes, that will be submitted on Monday,” she informed.

'Vidal explained the reasons behind her gambling policies. "This isn’t a matter of tax collections because, when we decided to close down bingo halls and casinos, we were waving the opportunity to raise more taxes. But this is a non-gambling commitment that I have. I do not want bing halls in poor neighborhoods, or in the Buenos Aires City suburbs."'
