Sales of State Lottery tickets are exempt from the tax imposed under section
The State Lottery must on or before the 20th day of each month transmit to the commissioner
of revenue an amount equal to the gross receipts from the sale of lottery tickets for the previous
month multiplied by the tax rate under section

is in lieu of the sales tax that otherwise would be imposed by this chapter. The commissioner
shall deposit the money transmitted as provided by section

treated as other proceeds of the sales tax. For purposes of this section, "gross receipts" means
the proceeds of the sale of tickets before deduction of a commission or other compensation
paid to the vendor or retailer for selling tickets.
