Indian country that is part of a tax collection agreement is considered a Special Jurisdiction. All tax due in each Special Jurisdiction is reported on the state tax return using the code assigned to that Special Jurisdiction. The tax remitted is then distributed between the State and Tribal governments based on the tax collection agreements.
That’s it for September 1st changes. Hoping you have great Fall Sales!
