After implementing the treaty, NStQ will have law making authority for the taxation of NStQ citizens and possibly other people residing on Treaty Settlement Lands. NStQ may enter into agreements to have the authority to impose property taxes on NStQ Treaty Settlement Lands including Right of Way, setbacks or utility corridors.
After a Final Agreement is reached, the Indian Act, including tax exemption, will no longer apply to NStQ First Nations. After 10 to 15 years, all members of the NStQ will pay transaction (GST/PST) and income taxes if required.
The NStQ may enter into agreements that any taxes paid by NStQ members will be returned to NStQ. NStQ and its assets will also be exempt from tax.
