The office of Indian Tribal Governments at the Internal Revenue Service was established to help Indian tribes deal with their federal tax matters. During the planning and creation of this office, we received valuable input from Indian tribal governments and tribal associations so we would be better able to understand and meet your specialized needs.
The Indian Tribal Governments office provides a single point of contact for assistance and service. Five field groups provide primary front-line service and are aligned to respect tribal affiliations wherever possible. These field groups consist of tribal government specialists who work in locations near the seats of tribal governments. Our specialists can address issues and provide guidance unique to Indian country. Issues may relate to tribal governments as employers, distributions to tribal members, and the establishment of governmental programs, trusts and businesses.
The overall goal of this office is to use partnership opportunities with Indian tribal governments, tribal associations, and other federal agencies to respectfully and cooperatively meet the needs of both the Indian tribal governments and the federal government and to simplify the tax administration process.
