Official says Alaska tribes could get IRS audits

- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A National Congress of American Indians official says Alaska's tribes should prepare for possible Internal Revenue Service audits. An agency attorney, John Dossett, tells the Juneau Empire ( that the IRS has been auditing tribes across the country. An Oglala Sioux Tribe official said during a Senate Indian Affairs Committee hearing in July that nearly every tribe in the Great Plains already has been audited. Dossett's group is telling tribes that if they haven't been audited yet, they probably will. Dossett said he doesn't know specifically if the IRS will start auditing Alaska tribes, but they should be aware it's a possibility. An IRS spokesman tells the Empire he couldn't comment whether the agency was superficially looking at tribes, or how many tribes have been audited in the last decade.
