Cherokees Not Worried by Taxes

Record #:
Recent court decisions upheld the contention of the government that the Qualla band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina are living in tribal relationship and that they are living on a reservation. The principal contention is that the Qualla Tribe does not hold the same status as Indians living on reservations ceded to tribes in the western part of the country. Although this band of Cherokee technically are required to pay federal taxes, they are not however, subject to state taxes.
