About TTAC

The Tribal General Welfare Exclusion Act of 2014 (P.L. 113-168) was signed into law by the President last September and requires the establishment of the TTAC. Through the enactment of the TTAC Charter, the Treasury has announced a call for nominations for committee members. The TTAC will be made up of seven representatives with the Treasury selecting three members of the TTAC and Congress selecting the remaining four members. The TTAC is an open advisory committee that is subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act. The committee members have a broad mandate to "advise the Secretary on matters relating to the taxation of Indians".
