Hello every one.
I'm mpoving to Budapest in a few weeks. Does anybody know what is tax for live and online winnings? Some sites say it's 30%, some that there is no tax at all. Please enlighten me =)
Thank you

Re: Hungary tax?

yeah, thast why I asked =)
it's dated 2011, and since then i've read that hungary had changes in gambling laws. Was hoping that maybe someone from Hungary is here and knows how it goes there. Is it taxed, is it not, or it's being swept under the rug, like you are supposed to pay, but noone does it?
thanks anyway

Bump

Would like to know about the current online poker situation in Hungary. Any info would be much appreciated. :-)

Can you play online, or are sites blocked?
How are online poker winnings taxed?

Re: Hungary tax?

Hi,

I potentially wish to come and live in Budapest

Are there players who live in Hungary to say how the tax system actually works?

I feel like most of them are not reporting anything and have never had a problem.

Are there tax controls in Hungary related to poker?

Thank you in advance
