The incorporation of 40% of the illegal market asked in Mexico

(Mexico).- Different actors of the gaming industry in Mexico requested the Tax Administration Service to incorporate the 40 % of the illegal market and represents a loss of us$ 229,757,766 for the Treasury, due to tax evasion.


lfonso Pérez Lizaur, president of the Association of Games and Draws Licensees, pointed in an interview that “before thinking in increasing the Special Tax on Production and Services, informal gaming should be incorporated”. 

Lizaur pointed that the games and draws market in Mexico represents us$ 3 billion annually, and has 5 million users. For each gaming terminal in Mexico, an average of us$ 53,61 is obtained, while in Argentina, the average is around us$ 459.
