Senecas Charge NY Tolls--NY Owes $20 Million

WESB News: 01/14/09 - Seneca Nation Looking to Protect Self

The Seneca Nation is devising a plan to collect tolls on the New York State Thruway that runs through native land in Irving.

This is a response to the state's plan to collect taxes on cigarettes sold to non-natives. The Senecas say the state already owes the nation outstanding compensation for past land use, but the state has refused to pay the $1 assessed on motorists since May 12, 2007.

The nation says monthly bills to the state are in arrears by over $20 million dollars.

Maybe the Senecas should receive a past due sales tax bill from NY!

And the pissing match has begun!
