Each year the First Nations Tax Administrators Association (FNTAA) hosts an annual national forum on First Nation property taxation and related topics, which provides First Nation tax administrators an opportunity to stay informed in a field that is constantly changing.
This year’s forum is hosted by the Tsuu T’ina Nation at the Grey Eagle Resort and Casino in Calgary, Alberta on October 3 and 4, 2017.
Conference delegates will enjoy an annual golf tournament and dinner reception, which will provide valuable networking opportunities with colleagues and professionals.
Workshops will cover the following topics:
- Taxation 101
- Tax Administration System (TAS) overview
- Assessment Board Review process
- How Lands and Taxation are connected
- Using Property Tax for Economic Development
- First Nation Success Stories
The forum will also include presentations from BC Assessment, the Tulo Centre of Indigenous Economics, the First Nations Finance Authority, the First Nations Financial Management Board and the First Nations Tax Commission.
The FNTAA Annual General Meeting and Board of Directors elections are also held each year at the forum and attendance also meets the professional development requirement for Certified First Nations Tax Administrator.
This forum is great for tax administrators, finance officers, lands managers, administrators, First Nation elected leadership, and lawyers and consultants who work with First Nations with property tax systems in place.
