Retail Gaming licensees are affected by new regulations that were recently put in to place; more specifically The Colorado Department of Revenue has implemented new rules regarding gaming taxes. The new policies require retail gaming licensees to acquire a surety bond in a quantity that the Gaming Commission is yet to establish. The surety bond guarantees that the gaming taxes will be paid. The bond must be from a state licensed surety company and it must have a paid-in capitalization of at least $500,000. As an alternative to the surety bond, cash deposits in the form of an assigned savings account or deposits in a state or national bank will be accepted in place of the bond.
