The Intersection of State, Local and Tribal Taxation in Washington State

Presented in partnership with the WSBA Taxation Section

The presentation will include a brief discussion of the history of federal policy toward Indians and the concept of tribal sovereignty. We will then explore the seminal cases that address treaty federalism and build on the concept of federal preemption. This historical view of the doctrines of federal preemption and tribal self-governance provide the conceptual underpinnings for understanding the intersection of state and tribal taxing jurisdictions. We will explore the hallmark decisions regarding state taxation of tribes, including the recent case, Confederated Tribes of the Chehalis Reservation v. Thurston County Board of Equalization. Finally, we will discuss the impact of the new BIA Leasing Regulations on state taxing authority.
