Message from the NNBA President

The NNBA is soliciting comments from the membership of the Navajo Nation Bar on the issue of whether the Internal Revenue Service should recognize the Navajo Indian Reservation as a territory or possession of the United States under Circular 230 section 10.2(a)(1) and welcome Navajo Bar members as attorneys for the limited purpose of representation in controversy cases before the IRS.

Please find uploaded a letter from President Barthelemy to the Navajo Nation Bar Association Membership regarding recent developments with the NNBA.
