Indy Gaming: Three years later, no action in D.C. to raise jackpot tax threshold

The gaming industry wants to increase the tax reporting threshold on slot machine jackpots from $1,200 to $5,000. The current threshold was established in 1977. House Congressional Gaming Caucus filed bipartisan legislation to have Congress authorize the changes. It's an election year and Congress is deadlocked by partisan bickering. A $2,500 jackpot is a common amount in slot machines. In the past, a $200 jack pot triggered a shutdown of the machine. Now, it's commonplace. According to AGA, slot revenues accounted for $32.5 billion of $53 billion in gaming revenues produced by the nation’s commercial casinos in 2021.
