Background for the TTAC:

The Tribal General Welfare Exclusion Act of 2014 (P.L. 113-168) was signed into law by the President in September 2014 and required the establishment of a seven-member TTAC. The committee members have a broad mandate to "advise the Secretary on matters relating to the taxation of Indians." Among the other duties, the TTAC helps establish training and education programs for Internal Revenue Service field agents who work with tribal governments and tribal finance professionals. NAFOA serves as the lead supporting organization for the TTAC. 

Copies of previous meeting agendas, minutes, and committee materials can be found on the Department of the Treasury's TTAC Page

NAFOA is pleased to continue working with the TTAC and coordinating with other national and regional inter-tribal organizations to further our common goal of making tax policy and programs work for Indian Country.
