Regarding Wednesday’s letter to the editor about why the state doesn’t tax Angel of the Winds Casino: To answer the question, there is a nice explanation from Forbes magazaine at https://tinyurl.com/statesandindiancasinos.
Reservations are sovereign nations, therefore, the state cannot tax them. Yes, hooray for Angel of the Winds Casino. They managed their money properly on their own land and are doing quite well. If you want the same, talk to Olympia about getting our state to legalize gambling, then you can partake in the profits.
