You're talking about fee or taxes?

If you play online, you don't have to pay anything. (except to the site [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img])

If you play in casiones, afaik you only have to pay fee, no taxes. But i can be wrong.
(You have to pay taxes e.g., if you win big in a lottery).

But the other problem is that each federal state has differnt laws about this (afaik).

If you wanna play in a special casiono, just call and ask, usually they tell u.

At this moment no pokerplayer had to pay any taxes but if you play 160h/month with 100k winnings a year it could be the case that one day you have to pay taxes.

In theory you have to pay taxes on your winnings but nobody does.

No - that's wrong. Lottery wins a taxfree in Germany.
