For the second quarter of this year, the state has received $8,712,143, which was then divided equally between educational assistance and property tax relief. The fact that the total tax revenue is shared means that all parties involved receive a fair share of the whole amount of money. Both the governments of Seneca Count and the town of Tyre received accordingly $544,508.90 for the second quarter, which marks a slight increase in the amount of capital amassed. As for the rest of the non-host municipalities, they received a share of the tax revenues as well.

Broome County claimed $584,468,98 which is also the biggest amount of money received by a county which is not a host of the integrated resort. Tompkins County, another municipality taken into account collected $295,917.30, whereas the Chemung County received $121,205.93. There are also two other counties which have the right to take a piece of the tax revenue pie. The Wayne County got $58,321.60 while the Schuyler Counties received the least amount of money from the integrated resort – $29,104. Del Lago Resort & Casino is obligated by the law to pay 37 percent tax on slot machine revenue and 10 percent of the revenue amassed by table games.
