Charitable Games Tax & License Fees
One annual application is good for four events. However, if all four dates are not requested at application
time, an organization may amend or add dates by requesting an amendment in writing 30 days
prior to an event.
- Organizations conducting charitable games are required to pay a $400 license fee. Licenses are valid for two years.
- Suppliers of gaming equipment are required to purchase an annual license for $500 or $1,500 for three years.
- An annual “provider’s fee” of $50 or $150 for three years is imposed on anyone who rents space to be used for a charitable game. Use the "Tax Rate Finder" to determine the fee.
