Gaming Tax Revenues Allocate $321.7 Million to Benefit Iowa
The Iowa Gaming Association recently released its annual overview of gaming revenue allocation by the Iowa legislature. Our member casinos' taxes continue to make an enormous impact with several visionary projects, touching every citizen in positive ways. Numerous initiatives are funded in several departments showcasing how the revenue generated by commercial gaming continues to leave a positive and lasting impression on our state's economic viability.
These appropriations are in addition to the $65.8 million in grants and charitable contributions that Iowa's commercial casinos provided in 2015. Combine those tax and charity dollars with the wages and benefits, plus purchases of Iowa-based products and services, and it collectively totals over $1 Billion in annual economic impact!
