Gov. Patterson Met With Senecas Friday

WESB News: 12/05/08 - Governor, Senecas Talk About Sales Tax

New York Governor David Paterson held closed-door negotiations with Seneca Nation representatives today as pressure increases on Paterson to start collecting sales tax from Indian cigarette retailers.

The state says it loses about $400 million dollars in tax revenues through the Indian sales. Lawmakers say collecting tax from the Indians would help close a $15 billion budget deficit.

The Seneca Nation declined comment on the afternoon talks but Seneca leaders have said in the past that they have little to negotiate because the tax-free sales are protected by treaties dating back to George Washington. The Paterson administration had no comment on the meetings either
