Santo Domingo Pueblo faces property tax claim
Santo Domingo Pueblo owes back taxes to Santa Fe County, local officials say.

The tribe acquired more than 2,100 acres from the Bureau of Land Management in 2002. According to a tribal attorney, the land has not been on the county's tax rolls.

The county assessor says that means the tribe owes back taxes. And that could affect the tribe's request to have the 2,100 acres placed in trust.
