About the Comanche Nation Tax Commission
On April 15th, 1995, the Comanche Tribe General Council adopted the Comanche General Revenue and Taxation Act of 1995. The adoption of this Act created the Comanche Tax Commission to oversee all taxation issues and allows the Comanche Tribal Government to fund Governmental operations, license and regulate businesses within the tribal jurisdicational boundaries.
The power to tax is an essential attribute of sovereignty; it is a necessary instrument of self-government and territorial management. This power enables the Comanche Nation government to raise revenues for its essential services by requiring contributions from persons or enterprises engaged in economic activities within our jurisdiction. The Comanche Business Committee has approved Resolutions creating codes for implementation of Sales, Bingo Excise, Tobacco, Oil and Gas Severance, Motor Vehicle Registration, Fireworks Taxation, Boats and Outboard Motors. All these taxes have been implemented.
