We should never receive a 1099. I have worked in Finance for much of my employment to know this was incorrect. Glad they corrected.

We all have a Trust Fund called the Native American Trust Fund. This is what the trust fund is written right on their site. "In the late 1800s, Indian Tribes signed treaties with the United States government. While terms varied, most treaties involved Tribes ceding title for their lands to the United States Government in exchange for protection, health care, education, permanent reservations, and sovereignty. In many cases, Tribes retained rights to resources and how they can be used on lands they ceded to the government, even when those lands extended beyond the borders of their reservations. These rights included drilling, grazing, hunting, mining, timber production, and other land uses through which companies make money. Today the U.S. Department of the Interior holds 55 million surface acres and 57 million acres in subsurface estates “in trust” for Native Americans. This Federal trust responsibility mandates both a moral and legal, fiduciary obligation to protect Tribal treaty rights, land assets, and other resources in perpetuity. To avoid a conflict of interest, the responsibility of managing the land assets (handled by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Bureau of Land Management, as well as other bureaus) is separate from the management of money earned by those assets (handled by the Bureau of Trust Funds Administration)."

Bruuuh make up yall mind please

So what about 300 enrolled members that the tribe DOES NOT have SS # for? Shouldn't Enrollment dept have them, since we have to turn them to get enrolled?

Found the Law stating we are tax exempt. [[Page 124 STAT. 3068]] (4) Acquisition of trust or restricted land.--The Secretary may acquire, at the discretion of the Secretary and in accordance with the Land Consolidation Program, any fractional interest in trust or restricted land. (5) Treatment of unlocatable plaintiffs.--A Plaintiff, the whereabouts of whom are unknown and who, after reasonable efforts by the Secretary, cannot be located during the 5-year period beginning on the date of final approval of the Settlement, shall be considered to have accepted an offer made pursuant to the Land Consolidation Program. (f) Taxation and Other Benefits.-- (1) Internal revenue code.--For purposes of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, amounts received by an individual Indian as a lump sum or a periodic payment pursuant to the Settlement shall not be-- (A) included in gross income; or (B) taken into consideration for purposes of applying any provision of the Internal Revenue Code that takes into account excludable income in computing adjusted gross income or modified adjusted gross income, including section 86 of that Code (relating to Social Security and tier 1 railroad retirement benefits). (2) Other benefits.--Notwithstanding any other provision of law, for purposes of determining initial eligibility, ongoing eligibility, or level of benefits under any Federal or federally assisted program, amounts received by an individual Indian as a lump sum or a periodic payment pursuant to the Settlement shall not be treated for any household member, during the 1-year period beginning on the date of receipt-- (A) as income for the month during which the amounts were received; or (B) as a resource.

I wouldn’t trust a presentation from the state to tell us why we should pay taxes on our own oil and gas!

So no live stream for the out of state members to attend??

I think a Facebook Live would be really handy in this kind of situation.

Can y’all keep us out of staters up to date

Are we get onit is on Facebook have one saying we are.get on are we get on

Picking and choosing what to answer. Our council have no balls. 😹😹

did anyone go since no live?

Will there be a live feed or no?

Live feed?

Alicia Hungary can you attend this?

Yeah other tribes made it available for out of state tribal members to attend council and informational meeting virtual would be nice. I think we get more attendees:)

6:02 PM right now just starting!... Socialism! Culture 1884 "Roma Locuta Causa Finita!... "

The tribe Should really figure out a way that we can join over a dedicated server for us that are at work or no longer live here

I hope this meeting is live streamed. The Tribe definitely needs to have some transparency in regards to the 1099 issue.

Live stream plz!

They won’t live stream. Even though they should!!! We can’t ask the council to do anything or even depend on them to make decisions that benefit us all, they only care about doing what they want and serves their best interests. The council has had a very strong records of this kind of decision making. So I’d really like to join by livestream and know for sure they don’t care and won’t do it.

Is there gonna be a live stream or zoom link so the out of state members can participate in the meeting? I would like know what is going on.

I attended one live stream meetings in the past so hopefully they can do that again. I would like to be informed but can't attend in person as I'm out of state.

Yes, live stream would be good

Live stream or zoom would be cool

Here is the law that states IIM (Individual Indian Monies) are Tax Exempt Because the Cobell Case was the Misappropriation of Funds and the handling of our Indian Monies in the Indian Trust Funds. That Land belongs to every Native American Enrolled in our tribe. It was gathered and held away from our people. Not letting us use our own money for our own necessities. When the Court case was won. They also determined by this act of congress that those funds are "Tax Exempted" because they are not taxable income. They belong to the tribe(s). Our people's money is being held by the BIA away from us. We need to band together and get our lands and monies back. Making sure your Family the elected officials should know what the laws are and to stand together and make things better for our people as a whole.

Other tribes livestream their meetings...some have YouTube channels, radio stations to broadcast, FB live, etc. It's all a part of transparency, accountability, and accessibility. It shouldn't be that difficult to even just set up a phone camera on a tripod. 🤔

And if there's going to be tribal meetings it would be great to have a more of a heads up so that way others may plan ahead to attend and understand wtf is actually going on. Wohei hahou

Yes we need a live stream please 🙏

So for future references this money coming in, in the future will be taxed?

Are any meetings live steamed?

Yes alot of the people want hear this..

I guess I'll go in person. If anything I'll get to eat.

Live streamed?

will they have a live on here

Billy Velarde are you going ? Need info on the 1099 thing too 😁

anyone video?

So this is in Ethete?

Brandon hahou 🙏🏾

How can we get it livestream? There’s a lot of tribal members who live out of the area.

I am not a member of your tribe . The 1099 people s because the U.S government want their share of your money. As we say being white nothing is free and you can alway depend on death and taxes . Welcome to the new federal government .
