New Hampshire Online Betting Bill Has No Taxes

This story was published more than 6 years ago.

A bill introduced by three New Jersey representatives last month which would legalize online betting has some analysts confused, as the bill simply would legalize online gambling in the state without establishing any regulations or taxes on operators.

The bill was introduced by Robert Fisher, Eric Schleien, and Nick Zaricki, and is formally known as HB562. The verbiage in the bill will add online gambling to a list of items that New Hampshire does not consider illegal gambling, but there are no other specifics. If the bill somehow did pass, it would do nothing to create a regulatory body for the activity, and no tax dollars would be generated off the profits of online operators.

It is likely that the bill will not go anywhere, unless other lawmakers make amendments to it to allow for more traditional elements to be added later on.
