Although President Barack Obama refuses to deploy the I.R.S. to audit the taxes of his alleged fellow Bilderberger, Alex Jones, an Austin-based radio host, it hasn’t stopped the White House from conducting tax seizures and land grabs on Native American tribes.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, “Ogalala Sioux Tribe Chief John Yellowbird Steele says the Internal Revenue Service is failing to recognize Native American sovereignty by trying to tax government-funded benefits the tribes provide their members.”
Chief Steele and other trial warriors are among witnesses testifying before a Senate panel on Thursday about the possibility that the IRS may soon collect taxes on government-funded benefits granted to tribal members and per capita trust payments.
According to the Houston Chronicle, “Steele says the IRS has been auditing several tribes and asking for documents on aid such as housing assistance, school clothes and burial assistance.”
In prepared testimony, an IRS official said, “that to be excluded from taxes, benefits and payments must be made under a government program, promote the general welfare and not represent compensation for services.”
