NJ’s taxes from gaming for June 2019

With the governor and legislators still differing over the coming months’ expected tax revenues, at least taxes from one source seem to be going in only one direction — up. And that source is the gaming industry, which took in $23.8 million in total taxes for June 2019, according to filings with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

New Jersey’s total gaming revenue for June was $283.8 million, compared to $233.6 million in June 2018, which reflects a 21.5 percent increase. For the year-to-date, total gaming revenue was $1.59 billion through June 2019 compared to $1.26 billion in the prior period, an increase of 26.2 percent.
