Wealthiest Americans Expected to Seek Asylum with Lakota Nation to Avoid Federal Taxes
But it isn't true. Even if they could become Indians, which they can't, they'd have to pay their taxes.
Indians pay all federal taxes and most state and local taxes. The only taxes they don't pay are state income taxes if they work on a reservation and local property taxes if they live on a reservation. Neither of these circumstances happens very often.
Resisters aren't the only ones who think reservations are tax havens. Most Americans think Indians are getting a free ride. Most Americans are ignorant about Indians because they believe what they see in the media.
