NATIONAL INDIAN GAMING COMMISSION
National Indian Gaming Commission.
Notice is hereby given, pursuant to 25 CFR 514.1(a)(3), that the National Indian Gaming Commission has adopted preliminary annual fee rates of 0.00% for tier 1 and 0.059% (.00059) for tier 2 for calendar year 2005. These rates shall apply to all assessable gross revenues from each gaming operation under the jurisdiction of the Commission. If a tribe has a certificate of self-regulation under 25 CFR part 518, the preliminary fee rate on class II revenues for calendar year 2005 shall be one-half of the annual fee rate, which is 0.0295% (.000295).
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Bobby Gordon, National Indian Gaming Commission, 1441 L Street, NW., Suite 9100, Washington, DC 20005; telephone (202) 632-7003; fax 202/632-7066 (these are not toll-free numbers).
The Indian Gaming Regulation Act established the National Indian Gaming Commission which is charged with, among other things, regulating gaming on Indian lands.
The regulations of the Commission (25 CFR part 514), as amended, provide for a system of fee assessment and payment that is self-administered by gaming operations. Pursuant to those regulations, the Commission is required to adopt and communicate assessment rates; the gaming operations are required to apply those rates to their revenues, compute the fees to be paid, report the revenues, and remit the fees to the Commission on a quarterly basis.
The regulations of the Commission and the preliminary rate being adopted today are effective for calendar year 2005. Therefore, all gaming operations within the jurisdiction of the Commission are required to self-administer the provisions of these regulations and report and pay any fees that are due to the Commission By March 31, 2005.
Vice-Chairman, National Indian Gaming Commission.
