Ohio Town intends to tax online gamblers

Village Solicitor Virginia Barborak revealed that one new provision in the tax code will allow any money won as a result of online gambling to be taxed at 1.5 percent, which is the same amount at which other forms of income are taxed.

"The last time our tax code was updated, online gambling really wasn't a factor," she said.
