IRS Advisory Committee Requests Tribal Government Feedback

October 16, 2015

The Indian Tribal Government (ITG) representatives on the IRS Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and Governmental Entities (ACT) is requesting tribal government feedback on tax administration matters. This is your opportunity to provide feedback on your tribe's interaction and communication with the IRS. 

Some questions you may want to consider:

1.

Is there sufficient information available on the General Welfare Exclusion Act or the Affordable Care Act as it relates to the Tribal Employer mandate and tax reporting?

2.

Has your tribe been involved in an IRS audit, compliance check, or review in the past 5 years?

3.

Has the IRS exhibited knowledge and recognition of tribal cultural traits?

4.

How has your tribe interacted with the ITG ACT website? How can it be improved to provide better information as it relates to the IRS?

5.

What should the ITG ACT committee address in future reports?

The survey will be available until November 6, 2015.
