Tax on Native college students delayed until 2006

First Nations students who receive tribal money to attend college won't have to pay taxes until 2006.

Canada's Customs and Revenue Agency planned to college the tax next year. First Nations educators plan to use the delay to lobby against collection of the tax.

The agency decided to collect the tax after ruling that post-secondary education is not a treaty right.
