Native American Veteran Income Tax Settlement Fund

On November 22, 2000, the United States Justice Department issued a memo declaring that the taxation and withholding of state income taxes from active duty military pay of Native Americans domiciled on their reservation was impermissible. The United States Department of Defense began mandatory Arizona income tax withholding on all active duty military pay on September 1, 1993 and continued withholding Arizona income tax through December 31, 2005.

Beginning January 1, 2006, Arizona no longer taxed active duty military and therefore discontinued state income tax withholding on this type of income.

The Native American Veterans Income Tax Settlement Fund was established on July 1, 2016 to refund Arizona income tax erroneously withheld from Native Americans who served in the military while claiming tribal land as their domicile from September 1, 1993 through December 31, 2005. During the 2017 Arizona legislative session, House Bill 2158 was introduced to amend the original legislation when it was discovered the Department of Defense may have withheld Arizona income tax prior to September 1, 1993.

Effective August 9, 2017, refunds may be claimed for years 1977 through 2005. The claim form and additional information is available at the following websites:

AZ Department of Revenue        https://www.azdor.gov/NativeAmericanVeteranIncomeTaxSettlement.aspx

AZ Department of Veterans’ Services
https://dvs.az.gov/nasf-native-american-settlement-fund

Key Dates

  • December 31, 2019: The AZ Department of Veterans’ Services will not accept claims after this date.
  • June 30, 2021: The AZ Department of Revenue will not grant refunds after this date.
  • July 1, 2021: Any money left in the Fund will be swept into the general fund.

About Zika

Zika is a disease caused by the Zika virus, which is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. It can also be spread by a man to his male or female sex partners during vaginal, anal, or oral (mouth-to-penis) sex. The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting for several days to a week after being bitten by an infected mosquito. People usually don’t get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika. For this reason, many people might not realize they have been infected. However, Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause a serious birth defect called microcephaly, as well as other severe fetal brain defects. Once a person has been infected, he or she is likely to be protected from future infections.

Traffic Incident Management for Responders

The Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder Course was developed through the Strategic Highway Research Program and is administered through the Federal Highway Administration. This four-hour program is provided by the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc. and uses a multiple-discipline perspective to train first responders within tribal governments in Arizona how to operate more efficiently and collectively. This unique course for first responders promotes a shared understanding of the requirements for safe, quick clearance at traffic incident scenes; prompt, reliable and open communications; and motorist and responder safeguards. The TIM training program focuses on a response effort that protects motorists and responders while minimizing the impact on traffic flow, including detecting, verifying and responding to incidents; clearing the incident scene; and restoring traffic flow.

Target Audience
To be effective, this course requires a mix of disciplines, including law enforcement, fire, transportation, emergency medical services, public safety, towing and recovery, public works, and hazardous materials (HAZMAT) disciplines.

Registration
To schedule training, contact Esther Corbett at Esther.Corbett@itcaonline.com or Nathan Nixon at Nathan.Nixon@itcaonline.com.
