Taxation of Online Gamblers Clarified by Spanish Authorities

Taxation of Online Gamblers Clarified by Spanish Authorities The confusing issue of taxation on online gamblers, and whether they are allowed to claim relief for losses incurred whilst gambling over the internet has been somewhat clarified by the Spanish government this week.
