If Costa Rica Tries to Tax Gambling Internet Sites, Will The Operators Flee?
There has been some press over the past several weeks that online gambling sites based in Costa Rica are the subject of possible legislation. Of course, they should be paying taxes somewhere at least, don't you think! Would they really leave? One guy says they might leave for Panama, just as the UK's gambling operations are leaving for Gibraltar.
I'm surprised in any case at the scope of this issue - are there really 10,000 people employed in Costa Rica's online gambling industry?
