Tribes & NCAI File With US Supreme Court To Preserve Taxation Sovereignty

Tribal reservations, as sovereign governments, have the authority to collect taxes. Eight tribes within South Dakota's boundaries, along with the National Congress of American Indians, are taking steps to make sure that authority remains intact.

On April 17, South Dakota goes before the U.S. Supreme Court to argue that out-of-state and online vendors should collect and remit sales taxes from South Dakota customers.

Tribes have filed a friend-of-the-court brief to make sure the opinion does not inadvertently disturb their current taxing authority. SDPB's Victoria Wicks reports.
