sales tax

Lawmakers on the Navajo Nation have approved legislation to tax alcoholic beverages sold in the tribe's casinos.

The 3.25 percent tax is expected to raise $73,000 a year. The revenue would go into a fund administered by the tribe's Division of Public Safety to combat drunken driving on the reservation.

People legally can buy alcohol and drink it only in tribal casinos and at a tribal marina at Lake Powell in Page.
