Italian tax authority to track down illegal gambling providers - Italy

Italian Finance Minister “Pier Carlo Padoan” announced a series of measures to keep Italian-based gamblers safe from illegal gambling providers. The 140-page resolution entitled "Report on tax evasion" has just been presented to the Council of Ministers, marking a sheer determination of the Italian government to unseal suspicious transactions on illegal e-gaming sites. Actually, the Italian tax services will be in use to track down illegal gaming rooms that have no licenses issued by the Italian gambling regulator, AAMS. In case of suspicious transactions, the gambling operator as well as players involved would be immediately fined. These measures are applicable to all types of gambling, including poker. Note that in recent years, the Italian gambling market has entered a totally new dimension with the advent of online poker rooms.

The report will later be submitted to the Italian Parliament to be enacted into law. However, the implementation of these measures will require a close cooperation with the other Italian institutions and other members within the European Union. These institutions need to closely work together to identify underground gambling operators and their fraudulent transactions. According to a report released by the Department of Finances, illegal gaming operators bypass the country’s taxation authorities with € 122 million of revenue shortfall. To win these figures back, the Italian government is poised to strengthen its collaboration with international banks and financial institutions. If approved, the resolution will provide a safe gambling environment for poker players in Italy, and lower down the risk of money laundering.
