ITG FAQ #8 Answer-Are members of federally recognized tribes subject to federal taxes as individuals?

Yes, with important exceptions.  Members of federally recognized tribes are subject to federal income taxes. In most situations, if a tribal member works for anyone, including himself, he is subject to the appropriate federal income taxes on the income, in most situations. This is also true for passive income the person might receive, from most sources.
