DSWV report questions legality of German betting shop tax

first_img A new report commissioned by German operator body the Deutsche Sportwettenverband (DSWV) has claimed that a turnover tax levied on betting shops by local authorities across the country contravenes federal law.The report argues that the local authority tax, which ranges from between 3% to 5% of turnover, means shops are taxed twice, as they also pay a 5% tax on stakes under the federal Rennwett- und Lotteriegesetz.Its author, Director of the Institute for Economic and Tax Law at the University of Augsburg, Professor Gregor Kirchhof, said that this meant betting shops were effectively taxed twice on the same source of income. Kirchhof also noted that the two taxes were even calculated in the same way.This, he said, meant that the local authority tax on betting shops amounted to a breach of the non-equivalency rule. This dictates that taxes levied by a municipality cannot be set on activities that are already taxed at a federal level. Therefore the local betting shop taxes are unconstitutional.Furthermore, he notes that a local excise tax must measure the actual costs the customer incurs that relate directly to the local municipality.Currently municipalities in Nordrhein-Westphalen, Baden-Württemberg and Hesse are taxing shops based on customer stakes. This, Kirchhof noted, is based on a 2017 ruling by the Federal Administrative Court that said the previous local authority tax on betting shop floor space was unconstitutional.“With a brief note saying that a tax on wagers is ‘workable and appropriate’ the court has caused municipalities to breach the constitution,” he said. “The mention [of wagers as a basis for tax] is only briefly mentioned, not substantiated, and its constitutionality is not discussed.”As a legally sound alternative to a turnover-based tax, he suggests that betting shops could pay a fixed rate based on the time each customer spends in the shop to watch live broadcasts of sports. Kirchhof said it is common for local consumption and excise taxes to be set at fixed rates whereby a lump sum is paid for a certain activity. In Berlin, for example, citizens must pay an annual tax of €120 per year if they have a dog.DSWV president Mathias Dahms said that Kirchhof’s findings showed there was an urgent need for change if local municipalities wanted to avoid refunding large sums to betting shop operators.“The DSWV would like to enter into dialogue with the municipalities over a new betting tax on a legally viable basis that will aid both parties, by ensuring tax revenues for the authorities and a fair rate for betting operators,” he said.Dahms highlighted the fragility of the current turnover-based tax system by pointing out that Administrative Court of Minden in Nordrhein-Westphalen recently annulled a 3% turnover tax set by the city of Bielefeld on betting shops.

Conclusion A lot of bookies performed well in our tests, but some stood out from the pack: Play at Roland-Garros typically comes to an end at the beginning of June, but things are different this year. This rescheduled tournament has been turned on its head. There is a trimmed-down field of players competing in drastically altered conditions. PlaceBookmaker#1SkyBet#2Paddy Power#3 Mr Green#4Bet365#5888Sport Sports betting Mr Green finished in third. It offered better men’s singles outright winner odds than either Unibet or 888Sport. All three sites finished joint-top, all taking identical levels of commission at 5.44%. All three sites had some of the smallest commission rates for some markets like the 4.95% they all took from first set winner betting. The next-best was William Hill at 5.34%. The thing that separated the top three sites from fourth-placed Marathonbet was consistency. Marathonbet’s commission shot up to 7% for the first set winner market while the other three sites remained at 4.95%. Unibet, 888Sport, and Mr Green all offered lower commission rates for the rest of the markets. Their joint-average for the five markets was 5.44% commission while Marathonbet took 5.59%. That’s what separated fourth from the top three.

Betting Expert is owned by Better Collective, the leading developer of educational platforms within the igaming industry. To find this out, we looked at over two dozen bookies: Again, the same four bookmakers pulled away from the pack, but things were even tighter between the top three for women’s singles betting. Best bookmaker for women’s French Open betting We compared outright winner odds for both the men’s and women’s singles events, but also odds from multiple matches and markets, so we examined four second-round ties. We looked at odds for match-winner, game handicap, set handicap, total games, and the winner of the first set. Best bookmaker for men’s French Open betting Best outright winner odds Tennis is one of the most popular sports on the planet. Millions of fans from around the world tune in to watch the best players compete for the most illustrious honours, the Grand Slams. The matches in question were Marton Fucsovics vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Andrey Rublev v Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the men’s singles second round and Petra Kvitova v Jasmine Paolini and Polona Hercog v Leylah Annie Fernandez in the women’s. Overall best bookmaker for French Open betting Tags: Tennis The commission is the thing to look out for here. Sky Bet stood out by offering just 30.93% commission for the men’s outright odds, well clear of the second-best at 33.05% from Paddy Power. Mr Green and Bet365 also had commission rates under 34% for the men’s singles outright betting. There are some similar names in the women’s singles outright odds with Bet365 and SkyBet taking the lowest commission rates at 33.28% and 35.91% respectively. Unibet and 888Sport took spots in the top-five for the women’s events with Mr Green coming in fifth. Some bookmakers remained reasonably consistent and offered some of the best odds for both men and women’s singles titles. Others varied widely with Bet365 providing the best odds on women’s singles outright but just the fourth-best for the men’s tournament. Contrastingly, Paddy Power had some of the best odds for the men’s tournament but was a lot lower for the women’s. Our search across multiple markets to find the best bookmaker for French Open betting spanned found Unibet, 888Sport, and Mr Green at the top of the list. PlaceBookmaker#1Unibet#1888Sport#1Mr Green PlaceBookmaker#1Unibet#2888Sport#3Mr Green We examined which bookmakers gave the best odds across five different markets and calculated a score based on their performance. Four bookmakers were clear of the pack, with the top three bookmakers for French Open betting in men’s singles matches being: The French Open is one of these four majors, and the only one played on clay. Third-placed Mr Green had an identical level of commission with 888Sport at an average of 5.42% and both deserved their place in the top three. Mr Green took just 4.73% commission for match outcome betting, a figure that was only beaten by Marathonbet’s total of 4.16%. Men’s singles Special credit should also be given to Marathonbet and 10Bet after both bookies came close to the top three. BetVictor also deserves to be singled out for offering commission of just 3.374% on one market. But consistency was what separated the bookmakers. It’s not just about offering the best French Open betting odds but also about showing that across the board in every market. Email Address Of all the ways to bet on tennis, the outright winner of a tournament is the most obvious. With hundreds of players in each bracket, we kept it to the top 85 players in each category. Here are the top five bookies for both men’s and women’s singles outright betting. Marathonbet came in overall fourth once again and beat the top three in some categories. They had a commission of just 4.16% in match outcome betting while the top three sites all offered 4.96%. 888Sport wasn’t far behind Unibet with an average commission of 5.42%. The site had identical odds to Unibet in every category except for the over/under for the total number of games in the first match we examined. They had some of the lowest commission rates of any bookmaker we looked at, like the 5.05% taken for betting on the first set winner. But which bookie offers the best odds on the widest variety of markets? 20th October 2020 | By Stephen Carter Of the ten categories – match winner, game handicap, set handicap, total games, and the winner of the first set across men and women’s matches – Unibet only offered the best odds for just one. However, its odds were in the top five for every other category so it finished with the best average. This is important for players who want to know which bookie has the best odds. It may not be a surprise to see Unibet at the top of this list. The overall best bookmaker for French Open betting is also top of the list for men’s singles matches. Unibet stood out in one particular category, the over/under odds for the total number of games in the match. Just one bookmaker offered lower than the 5.05% commission in this particular category for one of the matches. Their average commission acros men’s singles matches was just 5.34%. All data were collected in the United Kingdom between 17-28 September 2020 and is only accurate as of such. It was a close-run race with 888Sport finishing just behind Unibet in almost every category. 888Sport didn’t top any of the groups but placed second overall in the match betting for both men and women’s singles events.

The $1.6 million, 7,500-square-foot facility was designed by The Lunz Group and will be built by Miller Construction Management.Work is expected to finish by the end of this year. Preparation of the 1.5-acre site will begin this week.Station No. 5 will significantly improve emergency response times to the largely residential areas of northwest Apopka and also handle vehicle accidents along Wekiva Parkway and State Road 429.Staff will include 18 firefighters – six for each of three shifts. Emergency vehicles will include a fire engine, ambulance and a rapid response squad truck that will carry equipment for vehicle accidents and other emergencies.Fire Station #5 will be approximately 7,500 square feet and will include a living/sleeping area for six firefighters and a District Chief. It will have four parking bays that can hold two ambulances, a fire truck, a brush truck, a rescue squad, and a District Chief vehicle.The city recently hired 19 new firefighters to help accommodate the growing fire department. The hires bring the Apopka Fire Department up to 93 combat firefighters and eight administrative support staff. The new firefighters, who are undergoing five weeks of training, come from across the state from Jacksonville and West Palm Beach to Ocala, The Villages and various areas around Orlando. Several are from Apopka.The last new fire station to open in Apopka was Station No. 4 in 1997.“This should greatly reduce response times,” Apopka Fire Department Chief Charles Carnesale said. “We have a completion date of January 2018 listed, but Miller Construction thinks we can finish by November or December of this year.”According to the Agenda Packet provided by City Staff for the July 5th City Council meeting, the City Council approved a preconstruction services contract with Miller Construction Management, Inc. in November of 2016 to provide value engineering and other cost saving services to finalize the design of the Fire Station #5 project.

The GMP for the Fire Station project shall not exceed $1,614,800. Any changes not requested by the City, or any pricing increases, shall be the financial responsibility of Miller Construction. Any savings realized during construction will be returned to the City.The contract time is measured from the date of commencement and Miller Construction Management, Inc. shall achieve substantial completion of the entire work not later than 182 days from the time of commencement.Fire Station #5 will be approximately 7,500 square feet and will include a living/sleeping area for six firefighters and a District Chief.

Made a pretty bad smell until it was found, and it wasn’t me that did it! The best thing to do at weddings is to have a friend hide the car until it is ready to be used by the married couple. I’m still laughing….:) Our tackle box has a similar odor. Great tale and thank you for a great story!

I am greeted with an outpour from my dear one that something horrible has happened, and great suffering is in progress.Sympathetically, I listen as my sweetie tells me that she thinks something… some thing… has crawled into the house and died.  “It smells terrible!” she continues. “I have checked every room in the house but I can’t find anything.”“Did you check the boy’s room?”  I asked.  “You never know what they might drag home.”“Yes, I checked the boy’s room and couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary, except a couple of dried toads under one of the beds.”I chuckle as I remember my own boyhood. “Well, there you are.  It was probably the toads that smell bad.”“No dear, it wasn’t the toads. They’re all dried out –  like cute little toad mummies – no odor at all.”I go home early for it is obvious by my wife’s voice that this needs to be cleaned up, and I mean, quite literally, cleaned up, “NOW!”, as in yesterday.Honestly, I was thinking that it probably wasn’t much of anything at all. I mean, really guys, we know how sensitive wives can be, don’t we? I was sure she was exaggerating.She wasn’t exaggerating.The last time I smelled anything like that was when I forgot my many pairs of rotten socks at the bottom of my sleeping bag. After a two week camping trip. In the heat. And rain.That time, I had to burn the sleeping bag, which was a mistake. Have you ever burned a down-filled sleeping bag?  In case you’re curious, the odor – on a scale of one to ten – is astronomical.I walked in through the kitchen and immediately decided we were going to eat out.  No way was the odor that assaulted my senses conducive to a nice comfortable dinner at home.Wifey asked for the car keys, and as she and the kids headed for the driveway and began climbing into the car, I quickly exclaimed, “Wait for me Sweetie! It will only take a few minutes to get cleaned up and we can go together!”Her reply, in a voice that was so frigid it almost gave me frostbite, “The children and I are going for dinner, ‘SWEETIE’, and you are going to stay home and search for the dead, whatever-it-is!”Discerning fellow that I am, I could tell by the way she sort of hissed when she called me ‘Sweetie’ that I was in the deep, proverbial doo doo.As I watched my family drive down the street I was somewhat miffed. I mean, how could she blame me for the something stinking up the house?!Needing to get my strength up, I went to the kitchen and made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and poured myself a glass of milk.As I ate the sandwich, I began opening up all of the windows; it certainly wouldn’t hurt to air the place out.I prowled through the house next, searching for the abomination that had suddenly intruded upon my turf. I couldn’t find anything.Ah well, desperate situations beget desperate solutions and, understanding that the rat, or whatever it was that had very obviously died inside one of the walls, the only thing that I could do was start the delicate process of… demolition.Hammer in hand, I methodically started knocking holes in the drywall.(For some mysterious reason, when my wife got home that night, she took on a vow of silence.)The next day the smell was, if anything, worse than the day before. It taunted me. It challenged me. And I did the only sane thing a person could do: I continued punching holes in the walls.I spent the next two days alone, due to the fact that by this point, the family was living at the in-laws.It was on the fourth day that I found the dead rat. Yes… as much as I hate to admit it… the wife was right, it was a rat; the biggest, nastiest rat I have ever seen.I buried the rat in the back yard and called the drywall repair man.  Being a discerning fellow that he was, he took one look at the destruction and said, “Dead rat, huh?” and I just nodded assent.And now… now that the statute of limitations have run their course… I am going to tell  “THE REST OF THE STORY”.On the fourth day of my search I was prepping the utility room, next on my demolition list, when upon moving a bunch of goodies into the garage to clear the way, I discovered my fishing tackle box. Hmm! So that’s where I put it.I had gone fishing with a buddy of mine the previous Sunday and, when I got home, I set the tackle box next to the hot water heater… and promptly forgot it was there.At this moment a little light bulb began to glimmer, ever so dimly, as I remembered the two, pint-sized containers of night crawlers that I had put in the tackle box.Have you ever smelled rotten worms?They smell an awful lot like a dead rat. A very big, dead rat.After finding the ‘dead rat’ and burying it in the back yard next to that big azalea bush, I went out and bought myself a new tackle box, along with a new collection of lures. I figured I had endured a lot, getting to the bottom of this, and now, I was out a tackle box. Or maybe, I just needed to cover my tracks.One day I might go back and dig that ‘rat’ up. The lures probably don’t smell all that bad anymore, being buried next to the azalea bush all this time.An Outdoorsman’s PrayerDear Lord, please forgive me for deceiving my wife into believing the container of rotten worms was a dead rat. I don’t know if that is a sin of omission or a sin of commission, but whatever it is, please forgive me.  I love you Lord, and thank you for helping me through a lot of very stinky, rotten situations in my misbegotten life. In Jesus name I ask it, Amen.

Well it could be, ya suppose, maybe, ya reckon, huh? Chaz July 19, 2020 at 6:05 pm When Mama was 89 or 90, a rat couple decided to take up residence between her utility room walls. Mama didn’t mind them. Actually, being Mama, she appreciated their company, but our sister, didn’t. When Betty visited, Mama told her about her new friends. Betty’s reply was, “They have to go! They are very unsanitary!” And so, the rats were poisoned. Where did they die? Yup, behind the drywall in the utility room. However, poisoning with Warfarin that causes a rat to quickly dehydrate – the really bad stench lasted only about a month (and Mama kept the door to the utility room closed). When I visited on weekends, sleeping over, I became accustomed to the odor, as did Mama, but fearing that the odor might cling to my hair and clothes, I asked a friend whether I smelled peculiarly. “You smell like you might have been handling something rotten,” she replied. Just think, if the odor molecules are large enough to attach to one’s hair and clothes, the fact that you smell them means you have inhaled them. Sort of reminds me of the time some evil GENIUS, a real clever and sinister evil GENIUS, put a big chunk of limburger cheese on top of the heater in my boy scout leaders new car just before leaving on a camping trip one winter day.

Our task in designing this house was to accommodate a family on a sloping site – long and relatively narrow and incorporating an existing Victorian house. We also needed to ensure that the highly serviced building minimised energy use through passive solar design.Save this picture!Floor PlanWhilst the accommodation requirements and the shape, orientation and terrain of the site largely determined the formal arrangement of the house, the articulation of the fabric and the detail design were generated from both the passive solar methods employed and more significantly, our Client’s request that the architecture reflect their extensive time living in various parts of Asia.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe were conscious of avoiding a literal or thematic depiction of ‘Asian’ architecture, so the connections are subltle and characterised by a minimal palette of colour, texture and form and an attempt to reference the qualitative aspects of Asian architecture rather than obvious visual representations.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThat the house functions effectively for a family with frequent guests and supports both family life and individual privacy is a satisfying outcome for us.   The significant achievement however, is the unexpected narrative that the house offers once through the front door. There is a sense of space unfolding and the suggestion of more at every turn. There is also a quietness in this house, a stillness and sense of retreat from the city – perhaps the most essential link to Asia.Project gallerySee allShow lessEmerging Practices in India: Abin Design StudioInterviewsLonberg-Holm: The Forgotten Architect, RememberedMisc Share Photographs Architects: Kennedy Nolan Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  St Kilda West / Kennedy NolanSave this projectSaveSt Kilda West / Kennedy Nolan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/517276/st-kilda-west-kennedy-nolan Clipboardlast_img read more

(Photo By Sam Bruton/TCU Photographer)TCU football is no stranger to sending graduates to play in the professional tier, and that tradition continued with the rebirth of the XFL. Five former Frogs were chosen by XFL squads in preparation for the revival this upcoming February of the once WWE-controlled league.The draft format consisted of five phases, the first four with 10 rounds each, and then an “open draft” phase of 30 rounds, usually for special teams players. The first four rounds consist of offensive skill positions, offensive linemen, defensive front seven, and defensive backs.In the opening round, former running back Kyle Hicks was selected by the Houston Roughnecks as their first running back selection. Hicks’ accolades throughout his TCU career include an Honorable Mention All-Big 12 selection in 2016. Houston also selected Tayo Fabuluje, an offensive tackle who played in the 2012 season for the Frogs. He was originally drafted in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears.The Seattle Dragons picked Stansly Maponga as the third overall pick in the defensive front seven phase. Maponga played from 2011-12 at TCU and was selected to the All-Big 12 First Team and AP All-Big 12 Second Teams in 2012. The final defensive Frog off the board was Ranthong Texada, one of TCU’s best defensive backs in recent memory. Texada’s accolades include 2014 Scout.com Second-Team Freshman All-American, 2016 Honorable Mention All-Big 12, and 2017 AP First-Team All-Big 12. Cole Hunt, a former TCU grad transfer tight end from Rice, was the final Frog selection in the XFL draft. Hunt was taken by the St. Louis Battlehawks. Hunt earned an Honorable-Mention All-Big 12 and First-Team Academic All-Big 12 nod in his sole season at TCU.The local XFL team, the Dallas Renegades, did not draft any Horned Frogs but will host five home games at Globe Life Park in Arlington starting the week after Super Bowl Sunday.
