The Poarch Creek Casino Operation spent $1.55 billion on a single casino in Pennsylvania.
They think Alabama is only worth a billion dollars.
They Pay No Taxes on Alabama Casino Profits.
The Poarch Creek Casino Operation has three casinos located on sovereign land in Alabama: Wind Creek Atmore, Wind Creek Montgomery, and Wind Creek Wetumpka.
Even though the operation makes billions each year in annual revenue from these casinos and other investments, its three Alabama casinos are completely exempt from state and local taxes. The operation has worked hard to keep it that way, suing in 2015 to stop Escambia County from levying property taxes.
They Claim Our Laws Don’t Apply to Them.
The Poarch Creek Casino Operation has claimed time and time again that it isn’t subject to our laws. The Operation claimed sovereign immunity, for example, when a drunk casino employee injured an innocent couple in a head-on collision.
The Operation also argued that it couldn’t be sued in Alabama courts when the winner of a million dollar plus jackpot at Wind Creek Casino was denied his winnings.
They Take Money from Alabama and Invest It Elsewhere.
Despite paying no taxes to the state of Alabama, The Poarch Creek Casino Operation is investing huge amounts of money in other locations and paying taxes to those governments.
That includes the $1.3 billion purchase and $250 million renovation of a Pennsylvania casino, the purchase and upgrade of casinos in Aruba and Curacao in the Caribbean, and significant investments in Nevada, Florida, and Mississippi. The Operation uses its tax-free status in Alabama to score huge paydays, only to invest in other locations and pay taxes to them, not us.
