2015 Final Fee Rate and Fingerprint Fees

AGENCY: National Indian Gaming Commission.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given, pursuant to 25 CFR 514.2, that the 
National Indian Gaming Commission has adopted its 2015 final annual fee 
rates of 0.00% for tier 1 and 0.065% (.00065) for tier 2. 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 2015 final fee rate on 
Class II revenues shall be 0.0325% (.000325) which is one-half of the 
annual fee rate. The final fee rates being adopted here are effective 
June 1, 2015 and will remain in effect until new rates are adopted.
    Pursuant to 25 CFR 514.16, the National Indian Gaming Commission 
has also adopted its fingerprint processing fees of $21 per card, which 
is the same as the fingerprint fees announced in March 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Yvonne Lee, National Indian Gaming 
Commission, C/O Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street NW., Mail

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) 
established the National Indian Gaming Commission, which is charged 
with regulating gaming on Indian lands.
    Commission regulations (25 CFR 514) 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 and 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. 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.
    Pursuant to 25 CFR 514, the Commission must also review annually 
the costs involved in processing fingerprint cards and set a fee based 
on fees charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and costs 
incurred by the Commission. Commission costs include Commission 
personnel, supplies, equipment costs, and postage to submit the results 
to the requesting tribe. Based on that review, the 2015 fingerprint 
processing fee will remain the same at $21 per card.
