Mohawk Tribe inks a deal with state over taxes
ALBANY -- Four days after the Oneida Indian Nation struck a deal with New York State, over taxes, the Mohawk Tribe has done the same.
A deal between the tribe and the state means the Mohawks will immediately pay $30 million to the state and hold the remaining $30 million, they owe in back taxes, in an escrow account until a deal over a land dispute can be made.
The Mohawks had not paid the taxes they owe New York since 2010 after a "breakaway" tribe opened a bingo and slots hall near the Mohawks
