Native American Law: Know Your Commercial Rights and Obligations

Native America tribes and their holdings are exempt from many state and municipal regulations and taxes by virtue of the exclusivity clauses of several federal laws to which tribes and their lands are subject. A recent federal circuit court opinion held that the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 prohibits state taxes on Indian land rights, including a tax on leases thereon. Knowing if your transaction implicates Native American law, and how to optimally structure any such deal, is important to understand your rights and obligations under applicable law, and may save your business money in taxes and levies.
