Download as PDF 10210 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 37 / Wednesday, February 25, 2015 / Notices specified in the law, whose roles are identified above. This notice requests nominations for the three Secretarial appointments. The TWGEA builds on prior guidance that Treasury and the Service issued in direct response to requests from a number of tribal leaders, including representatives of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), Native American Finance Officers’ Association (NAFOA) and United Southern and Eastern Tribes (USET). Beginning in 2011, Treasury and the Service met extensively with tribal leaders, developed draft legal guidance, and requested comments. In IRS Notice 2012–75, draft guidance was issued ‘‘with reliance’’ to provide immediate certainty on conditions under which tribal government benefits are not subject to the Federal personal income tax. Final IRS guidance, issued last June as Rev. Proc. 2014–35, clarified these matters further. Building on this guidance, we anticipate that members of the TTAC will advise the Secretary on related tax issues, and on the training and education of Service field agents and tribal financial officers, as indicated in the TGWEA. II. Application for TTAC Appointment asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Treasury seeks applications from individuals with experience and qualifications in the subject areas identified by the TWGEA: Indian taxation, Service field agent training, and Native American financial officer training and technical assistance. Initial TTAC members appointed by the Secretary will serve as volunteers for terms of two years. TTAC member travel expenses will be reimbursed within government guidelines. No person who is a federally-registered lobbyist may serve on the TTAC. All potential candidates must pass a Service (IRS) tax compliance check and a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) background investigation.
