Notice is hereby given, pursuant to 25 CFR 514.2, that the National Indian Gaming Commission has adopted its 2017 final annual fee rates of 0.00% for tier 1 and 0.062% (.00062) for tier 2, which remain the same as the 2017 preliminary fee rates. The tier 2 annual fee rate maintains the lowest fee rate adopted by the Commission since 2010. 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 2017 final fee rate on Class II revenues shall be 0.031% (.00031) which is one-half of the annual fee rate. The final fee rates being adopted here are effective June 1, 2017, 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 2017 final fingerprint processing fees of $18 per card effective June 1, 2017. These fees remain the same as the 2017 preliminary fingerprint processing fees.
