Although the Tax Commission operates within the confines of the Tribal office,
and is otherwise integrated in a practical sense with the other Tribal departments,
the Tax Commission is legally a separate subdivision of the Tribal government.
Greg Pitcher is the Tax Commissioner. The Shawnee Tribe Tax Commission is governed
by an extensive code (Title 5 of the Shawnee Legislative Acts) that dictates when
and where taxes may be charged and collected. At present, the Tax Commission contains
one department, the Motor Vehicle Tag Department, also governed by Tribal legislation
(Title 7), which is directed by Kim Jumper. Kim also serves as the Tag Agent for
Motor Vehicle Tag Department
Department sells Tribal tags for passenger vehicles, motorcycles, and motor homes.
Kim Jumper is the Tribe’s Tag Agent. Since February 2004, when the Tribe first
began selling tags, Tribal members have purchased over 800 tags. Office hours
for the Tag Department are 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The Department
offers standard, personalized, and veterans tags. The Tag Department has recently
instituted a new, more sophisticated database that allows for easier reporting
and data entry.
