Oneida Nation near deal with state on taxation
Thursday, October 23, 2003

The Oneida Nation is said to be nearing a deal with the state of New York over taxation.

The deal would require the tribe to charge taxes on cigarettes and gasoline equal to state taxes. But the tribe would not be required to share revenues with the state.

The New York Department of Taxation and Finance has proposed regulations, set to go into effect December 1, to collect taxes on the sale of goods to non-Indians on all tribal lands. The Akwesasne Mohawk Nation and the Cayuga Nation say they will resist the effort.
