If a business operator’s adjusted total sports betting receipts for the month are negative because the winnings and excise taxes paid to wage workers under federal law exceed the business operator’s total sports betting receipts, the Sports Betting Act allows the business operator to carry over the negative amount of its tax liability on returns filed next month.
