In 2019, the TTAC identified policy priorities that the TTAC would address: General Welfare Exclusion, Dual Taxation and Tribal Pensions. The TTAC organized Subcommittees on these issues to analyze the issues, seek input from Tribal governments on the implications and impact of the status quo on Tribes and make recommendations to the TTAC on what Treasury and the Department of the Interior can do to address the problem of dual taxation on Tribal lands. The Subcommittee on Dual Taxation, which included subject matter and legal experts, spent several months examining the issue, synthesizing findings, and crafting recommendations to present to the TTAC.
The report was the reviewed, discussed in the December 9, 2020, public meeting and adopted with revisions. Upon adoption, the TTAC requested that Treasury engage in consultation with Tribal governments to hear their comments and feedback on the report’s findings and recommendations. Treasury hosted Tribal consultation on the report on April 30, 2021, and June 2, 2021. This will be the third consultation on this report, based on Tribal leader feedback. Please note that the report is a work product solely of the TTAC and is not a Treasury document. This consultation is part of the process for the TTAC to review the report and recommendations by Tribes and prepare final recommendations to Treasury.
The report can be found here: https://home.treasury.gov/system/files/136/TTAC-Subcommittee-on-Dual-Taxation-Report-1292020.pdf.
The Department of the Treasury is seeking input on the following:
- Does the report accurately reflect your Tribe’s experience with dual taxation?
- Are there any significant issues that were not included in the report that should be explored?
- What are your Tribes’ opinions on the recommendations included in the report?
- Does your tribe have any other recommendations to add?
- As Treasury considers the recommendations, how would tribes like to be advised of the progress of Treasury’s review of the report and recommendations?
- Are there specific implementation steps your tribe would recommend?
Deadline for written comments is: Friday, March 31, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. (Alaskan Time).
Written comments should be submitted to: email@example.com
