Leading Sports Data Company Defends MLB And NBA 'Integrity Fee' Demand:

An optimal solution, per Dr. Mintas, is the creation of a national level centralized hub that collates real-time anonymous betting ticket information and cross-checks the information with global betting markets, and she says the technology exists to accomplish same. However, a federal effort is unlikely as states prepare to create and enforce their own regulations, incorporate various taxation measures and allow for alternative forms of sports betting within their borders pending a "favorable" U.S. Supreme Court decision on the current ban. g-sports-data-company-defends-mlb-and-nba-integrity-fee-dema nd/#eae5e24a5d93

THIS is the key quote -- basically saying, if this thing passes and you guys get too greedy, it ain't gonna work.

"In general any additional tax/fee burden on regulated operators should be considered carefully with the overall tax rates and costs for operators, in order to not prove prohibitive to be able to compete with the offshore and illegal markets where operators usually pay only low taxes or fees," adds Dr. Mintas. "If operators have to pay high taxes on their turnover/handle, pay a market entry fee and additional an integrity fee, that might put them into a situation where they cannot compete with the offshore markets, which means they cannot offer the same odds to their customers and as they offerings will be less attractive. As a consequence, people might continue to bet in the offshore market which means the percentage and taxes which the stakeholder will receive will be small while these amounts could be higher in a well regulated environment."
