Casino tax revenue

Published 12:00 am Sunday, August 30, 2009

25 percent to Warren County and 65 percent to the city. A second revenue tax is a 0.8 percent share of the state’s 8.8 percent revenue tax. It is split based on population proportions between Vicksburg and Warren County. Each casino is also required to pay $150 for each gaming device annually to the city. Three casinos have paid the device fee thus far this year, and four had paid to this point last year. These are the latest receipts.
