The Ministry of Finance has published a game tax report for 2019 on their website.
State budget revenues from tax on all games supervised by the Ministry of Finance amounted to over PLN 2.3 billion. Almost PLN 824 million “fell into the tax bag” from legal bookmakers in Poland. Both amounts are higher than those in 2018, by 0.4 billion and 0.2 billion PLN respectively.
It should be noted that the popularity of betting has surpassed number games because last year more taxes were paid than the number games mentioned above:
- Sports betting 2018 – 622.846 million PLN
- Number games 2018 – PLN 719.941 million
- Sports betting 2019 – 823.856 million PLN
- Number games 2019 – PLN 760.352 million
Of course, compared to 2017, 2018 also saw an increase in budget revenues.
Below is the total tax that went to the state budget in 2019, also comparing previous years:
- 2019 – PLN 823.856 million
- 2018 – PLN 622.846 million
- 2017 – PLN 407.366 million
We would like to remind you that the tax on betting on animal sports competition based on permits granted only for arranging them is 2.5%. On the other hand, the tax on mutual bets other than those relating to sport competition of animals on the basis of permits granted only for their organization is currently 12%
What can we expect in the report for 2020?
