In 2014, KPMG was contracted by the State of Delaware to conduct another audit and found that, “higher gaming tax means fewer funds will be available to the casino operator to support capital investments, marketing, and other requirements. While a high gaming tax may enhance State revenues, it may conflict with other objectives such as job creation and the sustainable economic health of the operators.”
