Vic govt to appeal Tatts, Tabcorp levy win

State to challenge ruling that will see groups avoid $49.1m hit.

The Victorian government is appealing a court win by Tabcorp Group Ltd and Tatts Group Ltd against the state over a levy on gaming machines they no longer operate, which would have delivered a collective $49.1 million hit to the groups' after tax earnings in the current fiscal year.

It emerged in May that the levy on gaming machines had been charged for the current full financial year despite Tatts and Tabcorp ceasing ceasing their operation after 46 days.
