According to The Indian Tribal Government Office, administered through IRS, provides its customers top quality service by helping them understand and comply with applicable tax laws, and protecting the public interest by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all. ITG is guided by principles of respect for Indian tribal self-government and sovereignty.

ITG is the single point of contact with the Internal Revenue Service for Indian Tribal Governments and tribal associates. Our goal is to respectfully and cooperatively meet the needs of both the Indian tribal governments and the federal government, and to simplify the tax administration process.

Three field groups provide primary front-line service and are aligned to respect tribal affiliations wherever possible. Each field group manages tribal government specialists who work in locations near the seats of tribal governments. Our specialists can address issues and provide guidance unique to Indian country. Issues may relate to tribal governments as employers, distributions to tribal members, and the establishment of governmental programs, trusts and businesses. 

For Indian Tribal Governments and tribal associates who need information and/or assistance regarding their employment tax returns or tribal government accounts call 1-800-829-4933.
