Burgum, MHA Chairman Fox to sign historic alcohol tax revenue sharing agreement Friday


BISMARCK, N.D. (MARCH 21, 2024) – North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara (MHA) Nation Chairman Mark Fox and State Tax Commissioner Brian Kroshus will participate in a signing ceremony Friday for an alcohol tax revenue sharing agreement.


Last year the state Legislature passed, and Burgum signed, legislation that allows each of the five tribal nations in North Dakota to enter into an agreement with the state to impose a single tax on alcoholic beverages sold at the retail and wholesale levels within their respective reservations. Tribal nations that adopt the alcohol tax will keep 80% of the tax revenue, while the state’s general fund will receive 20%. MHA Nation is the first tribe to execute an agreement with the state under the new law.
