ONLINE POKER SITES ACCEPTING USA PLAYERS

It is no wonder that people working in the market for online poker in the USA is in a bit of a muddle because the current legislation for online poker is rather confusing. The heart of the problem is the fact the US government does not receive any tax benefits from company profits or indeed from the players who play online poker. In the foreseeable future it is quite likely that the US government will bring in state-by-state guidelines for online poker sites accepting USA players, where by only players from that particular state can play against others from that state. In order to make this a workable possibility it is likely that the profits from the games will be heavily taxed.

Illinois poker players can expect this form on legal online poker to be introduced during 2012/2013.
