The author discusses the implication of taxation of casino operators in the U.S. He looks at the tax structure that exists in most states which he believes are onerous for casino operators. He argues that states approving gaming should establish public policy that would consider the ability of casino operators to bring in new dollars to the state government. He believes that casino operators focus on states that have the lowest tax rates.
