South Africa - Gauteng eyes bigger slice of casino revenues
http://mg.co.za/article/2011-07-11-g...asino-revenues
"Gauteng charges a 9% tax rate to casinos -- this is the lowest casino tax rate in the country. Other provinces charge 12% to 15%, with the Western Cape charging up to 17%. What's most alarming is that this has not been reviewed for the past 13 years," Nkomfe said.
