Garzón made this statement during an interview. The channel was Europa Press radio. He revealed that Spain’s Ministry of Consumer Affairs had studied potential new formulas. The formulas are about tax gambling and sports betting operators.
Garzón said that any tax review would require clearance from Spain’s Ministry of Finance. It will implement fiscal change in a licensed sector.
Garzón also has stated its tax review intentions. He made these to the Treasury. He further said that they had put no specific project on the table as yet.
