Macao's gaming tax revenue leaps 62%

he information showed the gaming taxes accounted for 85.9 % of Macao's total receipts in January. The total revenue of the city rose 61.3 % to US$1 billion, while its total expenditure jumped 225.3 % to US$213 million.

The huge increase in expenditure was mostly due to higher transfer payments to the government's autonomous entities and the payment of so called wealth share handouts to residents last year.

According to Macao's law, casinos should pay 35 % of their gross revenues as direct tax to the government.
