Christie Signs New Tax on Fantasy Sports BettingLast Edited:
Governor Chris Christie has officially signed a new bill into law to regulate and tax daily fantasy sports betting.
The new measure will impose a 10.5 percent tax on the winnings of companies that offer daily fantasy sports betting.
Officials say the new tax would generate an estimated $6.6 million annually in state taxes.
The law enables daily fantasy sports providers to partner with a casino or racetrack, but doesn't require them to do so.
It prohibits the use of high school sports games and players.
