Several players have been confused about gambling taxation and the declaration of their winnings from betting and gambling in general. We'll show you what the law says to try and answer your questions.
GAME TAXATION BY GAME GAMES
Before we begin, let us note the important thing that the taxation of winnings in gambling with columns (such as betting) are subject to tax per column play. The height of the column is determined by the gambling provider and varies by company. For example OPAP has 0,30 euro / column, bet365 and stoiximan have 0,10 euro / column, etc. So, depending on what you are playing, you are taxed according to the value of the column specified by the provider.
Based on 4141 / 2013 law as it was published in FEK A '81, any profits earned on OPAP or to 24 legitimate companies operating in Greece, a tax on winnings from Internet betting is taxed according to the following tax scale (Article 22):
- When there is a net profit per column 100 to euro is tax free
- When there is a net profit per column by 100,01 500 to euro, then the amount exceeding 100 euros is taxed with 15% (the first 100 euro is tax-free)
- When there is a net profit per column from 500,01 Euros or more then the amount that exceeds 500 euros, is taxed with 20% (the first 100 Euros are tax free, the next 400 Euros are taxed with 15%, and the remaining earnings from 500 and above are taxed with 20%)
The crucial thing for the player is to know that taxing his profits is by withholding taxes from the providers (OPAP or 24XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX-XO ) on behalf of the player, at the time he requests his profits. Commonly, once paid, it will already be taxed.
TAX GAMING OF GAMES WITH PATIENT CONFERENCES
The law sets out a different way of taxing gambling with play sessions. Games played through games are games of chance and casino gambling, the result of which is not generated by a random number generator, also known as live casino games, including, but not limited to, poker tournaments .
In these games the taxation is done according to the same scale as mentioned above with the difference that the withholding tax will become the moment the game is over and not when it is called up. That is, the tax will be withheld to the winners of a poker tournament at the end of the tournament and do not have to wait for a withdrawal.
DECLARATION OF PROFITS BY TIRE GAMES IN THE TAX DECLARATION
In the income statement you can declare your revenue from the bet or more generally by gambling. It's good Ask for tax returns and tax deductions from the companies you won to include them in your statements. This amount will be taxed only on the solidarity levy and will not be included in the income to be taxed as a whole with the applicable tax scale.
