NATIONAL INDIAN GAMING COMMISSION


Fee Rate

AGENCY: National Indian Gaming Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given, pursuant to 25 CFR 514.1(a)(3), that 
the National Indian Gaming Commission has adopted preliminary annual 
fee rates of 0.00% for tier 1 and 0.074% (.00074) for tier 2 for 
calendar year 2012. 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 2012 shall be one-half of the annual fee rate, which is 
0.037% (.00037).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chris White, National Indian Gaming 
Commission, 1441 L Street NW., Suite 9100, Washington, DC 20005; 
telephone (202) 632-7003; fax (202) 632-7066.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) 
established the National Indian Gaming Commission which is charged 
with, among other things, regulating gaming on Indian lands.
    The regulations of the Commission (25 CFR part 514), as amended, 
provide for a system of fee assessment and payment that is self-
administered by gaming operations. Pursuant to those regulations, the 
Commission is required to adopt and communicate assessment rates; the 
gaming operations are required to apply those rates to their revenues, 
compute the fees to be paid, report the revenues, and remit the fees to 
the Commission.

[[Page 5268]]

    The preliminary rate being adopted today is effective for calendar 
year 2012. Therefore, all gaming operations within the jurisdiction of 
the Commission are required to self administer the provisions of these 
regulations, and report and pay any fees that are due to the Commission 
by June 30, 2012.
