The National Indian Gaming Commission has adopted its 2017 annual fee rates, which remain the same as the 2017 preliminary fee rates. The Tier 2 fee maintains the lowest fee rate since 2010. These rates apply to all assessable gross revenues from each gaming operation under the jurisdiction of the NIGC. If a Tribe has a certificate of self-regulation under 25 CFR part 518, the annual fee rate on Class II revenues will be one-half of the annual fee rate.
Tier 1: 0.00%
Tier 2: 0.062%
Tier 2 (Self-Regulation): 0.031%
The final fee rates are effective June 1, 2017, and will remain in effect until new rates are adopted.
The NIGC has also adopted its 2017 final fingerprint processing fees of $18 per card effective June 1, 2017.
