Deadline Extended for Small Games of Chance Reports, Says Turzai
HARRISBURG – The deadline for nonprofit organizations and charities to submit annual and semi-annual reports as part of the updated Small Games of Chance Act has been extended for a year, Rep. Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) said today.

The Corbett administration announced the deadline is being extended from Feb. 1, 2013, to Feb. 1, 2014, for licensees to submit the reports to the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue as required by Act 2 of 2012.

Under the law, eligible organizations with proceeds in excess of $2,500 in a year will be required to file the reports electronically in 2014 for the preceding calendar year. Some of the required information includes the number of W-2G forms issued, the total gross winnings reported on W-2G forms issued, total prizes paid, and the amount of proceeds used for public interest purposes.

The Small Games of Chance law was updated last session to give nonprofit organizations the ability to increase prize limits for their small games of chance.

The delay in the reporting deadline applies only to the annual and semi-annual reports. Licensees are required to continue to maintain other records as outlined in the law.

More information regarding reporting requirements may be directed to Turzai’s district office at (412) 369-2230 or the Department of Revenue at (717) 787-8275.
