be Political parties and the tax on arcade games

Political parties and the tax on arcade games Belgians will vote on May 26. As you probably know, the use of arcade machines is subject to a tax in the form of a sticker called "tax on automatic amusement devices". This tax is to be paid in addition to the VAT paid at the time of purchase of the machine and to the revenue tax on the income generated by the machine if it is equipped with a coin mechanism. At the time of eSports, Retro-gaming and smartphones, this tax is no longer necessary. Especially since the arcades of the time have become mini-casinos, the bars have replaced arcade machines with bingos and eSports bars are equipped with home consoles. Today, this tax hits only small operators and enthusiasts. This anachronistic tax has been abolished in France in 2015 and in Flanders this year. In Belgium, the Region of Brussels and Wallonia are the only remaining places where the tax is not only still applicable but is also increased each year. It has been a long time since we denounce the unfairness of this imposition which will ultimately lead to the total disappearance of arcade games in public spaces in the south of the country. We had already tried to change things without success during the last elections. This time, we are determined to seize the opportunity to abolish this tax. One week before the elections, we sent a letter to all the political parties that ran in the regional elections in Brussels and Wallonia to ask for their position on the issue and if they were for a removal of the tax on arcade video games, air-hockeys and pinball machines. Agir, Nation and B.U.B. were the first to answer us, Défi, the PS and Ecolo promised to come back to us. All answers will be published in full and in chronological order of their reception on this page: "The position of political parties on the abolition of the tax on arcade games". This is the opportunity to save arcade games, think about it! Your vote will have an impact on your passion. Of course, we will monitor the progress of this issue closely and other actions will be taken to ensure that these promises do not fall into oblivion. You can already read the first answers on this page.
