Subject: 2003 Fee Rate; Preliminary
The National Indian Gaming Commission (Commission) has adopted preliminary annual fee rates of 0.00% for tier 1 and 0.059% (.00059) for tier 2 for calendar year 2003. These rates shall apply to all assessable gross revenues from each gaming operation under the jurisdiction of the Commission.
If a tribe has a certificate of self-regulation under 25 CFR part 518, the preliminary fee rate on class II revenues for calendar year 2003 shall be one-half of the annual fee rate, which is 0.0295% (.000295).
The fees are due in four quarterly payments. Enclosed is a copy of the Notice announcing the adoption of these rates.
Please be sure to use calendar year 2002 as the base period for determining 2003 fees payments. Also, please provide the following identifying information: name, address and telephone number of the gaming operation; name of licensing tribe; name and telephone number of contact person.
