Business Licensing and Tax Commission

Who We Are

The Board of Directors created the Business Licensing and Tax Commission in April 2008 when it adopted a new business licensing and taxation code. The members of the Business Licensing and Tax Commission are:

Tracey Boser, Chairperson
Jimille Smith, Vice-Chairperson
Victoria Yeager, Secretary

What We Do

The Business Licensing and Tax Commission administers the business and revenue laws of the Tribe. A person who does not have a Tribal Business License cannot lawfully do business on the Tribe’s land. The Business License Code requires any person or business wanting to do business with the Tribe must obtain a Business License. The following must obtain a Tribal Business License:

Construction Contractors
Fixed Retail Sales
Peddlers
Adult Day Care Centers
Child Care Centers
Wholesale Sales

A list of exemptions can be found in Part 2, Section 4 of the Business Licensing Code.

Our Goals

Licensing persons doing business on the Tribe’s land generates revenue for Tribal government services and programs, and enhances Tribal sovereignty by enabling the Tribe to regulate all business activities on the Tribe’s land. Knowing who is doing business on the Tribe’s land helps protect the Tribal members from unscrupulous businesses.

When We Meet

Regular meetings take place the first Tuesday of every month at 4:30p.m. in the Administration Building at 3322 236th ST NE, Arlington, WA. All meetings are open to the Tribal public.
