Final Opportunity for Feedback on First Nation Tax Report

Local governments have one more opportunity to provide feedback on a report that explores current dynamics related to First Nation taxation.  Member feedback is requested on First Nation Property Tax, Services and Economic Development in British Columbia, prepared by Professor Robert Bish and Fiscal Realities Economists, by February 27, 2015.

The report, jointly released by the First Nations Tax Commission and UBCM, provides information on the evolution of First Nation taxation, the development of local government service agreements, and related legislative developments. It concludes with five suggestions for future action, in order to “build on the recent positive history between First Nations and local governments in BC”.

Senior local government staff are invited to comment on the report. Comments and questions may be directed to UBCM Policy Analyst Bhar Sihota at (604) 270-8226 x113.
