On December 28, 2015, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians (“Tribe”) announced that a Pokagon citizen, Eugene Magnuson, had been appointed to the US Dept. of Treasury Tribal Advisory Committee (“Committee”). The appointment was made by Michigan Representative Sander Levin (D-MI), the Ranking Member of the Ways and Means Committee.

The Committee is charged with advising the US Treasury Secretary on issues related to tribal taxation and establishing training and education programs for IRS employees working in with tribal governments. It is made up of seven members and regulatory released guidance related to tribal accounting issues and other financial matters.

Mr. Magnuson is currently the Treasurer of the Tribe and has served as Chairman of the Tribe’s Mno-Bmadsen Economic Development Board since 2009. Prior to this, he held positions with a variety of industries, including food service, health care, retail, and gaming.

“Mr. Magnuson has been a leader on economic and tax issues in Indian Country for years, and he is uniquely qualified to serve as a member of the Treasury Tribal Advisory Committee,” stated Rep. Levin in a press release. “Given his extensive knowledge and experience in business development and working with Tribal governments, Mr. Magnuson will provide valuable firsthand insight to the Treasury Secretary as the agency strengthens its work with Tribes.”
