The South Australian Council of Social Service welcomes the passing of legislation to establish the SA Wagering Tax. The tax, which was announced as part of the State Budget this year, will ensure that online bookmakers pay gambling tax in South Australia on revenue made from South Australian gamblers.
SACOSS is the South Australian Council of Social Service, the peak body for the non-government health and community services sector in South Australia.
SACOSS does not accept poverty, inequity or injustice. We will be a powerful and representative voice that leads and supports our community to take actions that achieve our vision of justice, opportunity and shared wealth for all South Australians. We will hold to account governments, business, and communities for actions that disadvantage vulnerable people
