On (and beyond) the waterfront

News from South Carolina: “Horry County pressed forward Monday on the state’s first casino boat tax despite a legal challenge from a boat operator. The tax could go before County Council next month and, if passed, net millions of dollars in annual revenue from two gambling boats in Little River, according to the council’s Administration Committee,” reports HeraldToday.com here. Though the boat company appears willing to pay a “boarding fee,” it isn’t racing to pay revenue taxes. Its argument, which seems logical, is that gambling is illegal in South Carolina and, therefore, the state cannot profit from gambling which occurs on international waters. (Editor’s note: Other than a couple of deadlines, I know nothing about tax.)
