The Georgia Lottery has released some more helpful advice for all location owners, in reference to frequently asked questions and issues involving equipment. We are pleased that we have some September 2017 COAM news to report to you to keep you informed about all of your games and what your master license holder should be doing to keep your games compliant! Lucky Coin wants to make sure that all locations are made aware of the best practices for operating the games. In the July-September 2017 COAM Connection Newsletter, the GA Lottery informs location license holders:
LAST DAY TO RENEW YOUR LICENSE FOR THE 2017 – 2018 COAM LICENSING PERIOD IS SEPTEMBER 30, 2017
Your Coin Operated Amusement Machine (COAM) license must be renewed in order to continue owning or operating Class A and Class B machines (Master or Location Licensee), supplying and selling major components or parts (Manufacturer Licensee), or buying, selling, or distributing Class B machines to or from operators (Distributor Licensee). If a holder of a 2017 COAM license fails to renew its license application or its license application is not approved on or before September 30, 2017, the person or entity will no longer be allowed to own or operate COAMs, supply or sell major components or parts, or buy, sell, or distribute Class B machines. Submitting your application and resolving any outstanding compliance matters as soon as possible will ensure the timely and efficient processing of your COAM application. Below, you will find some common reasons for a delay in the processing of licenses:
Failure to resolve outstanding issues with the Department of Revenue (DOR). The most common issue related to the processing of COAM licenses each year are outstanding matters between the licensee and the Georgia Department of Revenue. Licensees are notified by email and on the status screen of the COAM website that their application is delayed due to DOR outstanding issues. It is in the licensee’s best interest to resolve any DOR outstanding issues by calling them at (404) 417-4445. To protect a licensee’s right to privacy, COAM staff are barred from discussing tax return issues with anyone other than the taxpayer or with the taxpayer’s designated representative. Therefore, before any confidential tax information is released over the telephone, a COAM representative will ask questions to verify your identity.
Failure to respond to communications from the GLC. The GLC COAM Retailer Contracts Administration Department communicates with licensees through email, written letters and phone calls. The licensee’s failure to promptly respond to communications from the GLC regarding Fiduciary Security Deposit (FSD) issues, address clarifications, or other lottery related matters may delay the timely and efficient processing of the COAM application. Contact a member of our COAM Retailer Contracts Department at (800) 746-8546 Option 4 and 1 to discuss matters involving your COAM license.
