The 1.7% distributor tax on pull-tabs and/or tipboards was repealed as of July 1, 2012.
Organizations that conduct lawful gambling may be eligible for a refund on the tax paid to distributors on unsold pull-tab and tipboard tickets from January through June 2012. Unsold ticket refunds for these filing periods will be processed only with the February 2013 return due by March 20, 2013.
To claim this refund, licensed organizations must submit Form G7430, Lawful Gambling Refund of Tax Paid on Unsold Pull-tab and Tipboard Tickets. This form will be posted on our website as soon as it is available.
Refund payments will be issued by June 20, 2013. However, refunds are subject to recapture if the organization owes a lawful gambling tax debt or has a liability for any other business tax.
