The division of gaming within the department of revenue currently publishes on its website monthly and annual public reports of revenues, expenses, and other information from limited gaming activity in Central City, Black Hawk, and Cripple Creek. The bill requires similar reporting for revenue associated with sports betting. To protect the privacy of owners of sports betting venues, when the number of licensees in any of the cities is less than 3, the bill requires aggregation of data from that city with data from another city.
If the use of aggregated data results in a property valuation that the casino owner or other taxpayer believes is inaccurate, the bill permits the taxpayer to submit additional information to the county assessor, subject to strict confidentiality requirements that continue throughout the property valuation process and any subsequent appeals or court proceedings.
