I'm with the Indians...White man outsmarted them for N.Y. City way back when. It took a while but they learned how the game is played.

The real point is this folks. NY wants to make the Native americans into inner city, minority democrats, get them on the dole. This way here, the inner city folk pay little taxes and get benefits. The Indians are resisting. That is a no -no in a nanny state. Even blunter, the caucasians and disease swept the land out from under the indians. we can spare their small tobacco and gas business.Greed again libs , by your sacred govt ! It will teach them white man ways . They are behaving just like the teachers union in NY. I wish success to the wholesalers !

AHHH I CAN ONLY GUESS WHO DISAGREED WITH MY ORIGINAL COMMENT!! BUT WAS VERY IGNORANT TO THE FACT I RE-POSTED TO SAY TO COMMENTOR THAT I WAS BLIND SIGHTED & DID NOT ORIGINALLY THINK OF THINGS FROM THAT POINT OF VIEW.I ALSO THANKED THAT PERSON FOR OPENING MY EYES TO THAT SIDE THAT I DIDN'T LOOK AT..AT LEAST I CAN ADMIT IT.CAN'T YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I EVER SAY OR DO ANYTHING RIGHT? OR IS IT I JUST DON'T FIT IN YOUR CRITERIA AS A HUMAN BEING?

I agree that Indians should not have to comply with NYS tax laws on any sales taking place ON the reservation. However, like crossing over to Canada, I do believe the government should set up toll booths to force a tariff on any goods sold to non-natives. I also think at that point in time, no welfare, no Medicaid, none of those benefits should be paid out to any Indians living on the reservation. Also, since they pay no property taxes for schools, then I guess the education of their children is also their problem. As for any money they kick in towards schools, fine, it's only right, but don't then force the schools to teach certain course, which they do. Fair is fair.

@COMMENTER.I agree with you on that issue. I did not look at it from that point of view. As they do get NYS benefits & don't have to pay NYS taxes on anything,they carry a tax exempt card!! THANKS FOR POINTING THAT OUT!! NYS does have many more advantages to save them money as opposed to them saving NYS money.Such as grocery stores,clothing stores,malls,restaurants,motels, hotels,businesses,insurances,auto dealers so on & so forth..Gosh sure am glad you posted that comment.Just plain blind sighted on my part.But I don't wish no ill will upon Indians or their native land.

I have no problem with Indian's paying no tax but if they want to pay nothing to NYS then they should take nothing from NYS. No benefits. Can't have your cake and eat it too!!

Why don't the State go after all the agencies within the NYS region for all the taxes that are owed for whatever reason it may be.Let those stories make front page news instead of brushing them under the rug.Give harsher fines for those who sell cigs to minors.Worry about what goes on in our own backyard before they continuously try to dig up dirt in others.If the State would put forth as much time & effort into our own State instead of continuously harassing the Indians I bet they'd find alot more dirt right here & alot of illegal untaxed cig selling going on along with those who most likely re stamp with the NYS tax stamp.In this day & age anything is possible when ya want it bad enough. you can almost learn anything from the search engines online..I'm sure if ppl can build bombs from online resources they can learn how to restamp cigs.LEAVE THE INDIANS ALONE & LET THEM LIVE ON THEIR LAND FREELY WITHOUT BEING A SNAKE IN THE GRASS.

Good luck in trying to sue the Indian nation. Since the introduction by Bloomberg to outlaw soda sales in 32 oz bottles and stopping the sale of soda in containers of 32 oz or more it seems that New York state is turning into a nanny state. Is it any wonder businesses are moving out? The state will lose this case. If NYS would wake up and try to compete with other lower taxed states perhaps the people would remain. But no either get it all or nothing. Sad day for the state and even sadder for those who live here.
