Tribal members living in the agreement area are exempt from state income tax. They also receive state tax discounts on many purchases. The agreement applies to the Michigan sales tax (6% of retail price), use tax (6% of purchase price), motor fuel tax, cigarette tax and the single business tax. Members are also entitled to an annual income tax refund check, which is 4 percent of adjusted gross income, and must be filed when filing your income taxes.
