|Poker-tax authorities: A debate is imperative|
|Tax authorities are not jobless. They keep an eye by trying to find any legal means to fill State coffers. And professional poker players, who are often on the foreground with rather significant gains, interest them more and more. |
The names which are often mentioned on the web are in their sights. In spite of existing laws, not precise enough on the real status of keens of poker, this branch of administration want to tax players of live and online poker, as being professionals and non-simple enthusiasts practicing leisure.
So, gains they got during tournaments are considered as taxable earnings. However, it is not time yet for the realization of this project. Thus, it will not be surprising if there is a meeting concerning this matter between the two parties, poker players on a side, and administration on the other hand. So, poker players should defend their case if they consider that this card game should be taxable or not.
