Indiana state legislators begin anew to legalize igaming Chris Altruda, Hoosier State Bets · January 13, 2022 at 6:35 pm Competing bills were filed in the Indiana state legislature this week to legalize iGaming in the Hoosier State, though it is uncertain if either bill will gain traction. In 2021, a similar effort did not. HB 1356 was filed by Republican Rep. Doug Gutwein and co-authored by Republican Rep. Ethan Manning. The bill calls for an 18% tax on adjusted gaming revenue, a rate nearly double the 9.5% the state currently taxes AGR for sports wagering. As a point of comparison, neighboring Michigan taxes online casino gaming between 20% and 28% based on adjusted gross receipts. Fellow Republican Rep. Alan Morrison filed HB 1337, the second consecutive year he has filed a bill seeking to legalize and regulate iGaming in Indiana.
