Players across Sweden, Finland, Poland, Slovenia, Romania, Germany and the Netherlands will soon be able to play on Full Tilt Poker without fear of the tax man.
Currently these nations are liable for tax when playing on the site because of certain country’s interpretations of income tax law.Essentially, countries like Sweden have been calling for tax payments from native players who’ve been plying their trade on non-EEA (European Economic Area) jurisdictions.Because Full Tilt is based in the Isle of Man (a non-EEA country), it means that players logging onto the site could fall under this legislation. To combat this, Full Tilt will be doing as PokerStars did and creating a new .EU site. Hosted in Malta, the site will be identical to the .COM platform but simply allow players to avoid the tax legislation.The move will certainly come as welcome news to players across Europe; moreover, it could produce a spike in Full Tilt’s traffic over the next few months.New players at Full Tilt Poker can join with a 100% first deposit bonus of up to $600. Sign up Full Tilt Poker.
