First Nation tax authorities levy and collect taxes in the same manner as other local governments throughout Canada. First Nation tax systems base taxation on a property assessment, use market value assessment methods, use professional assessors, and set rates based on a budget. Procedures for assessment appeals and tax enforcement in First Nation tax systems are also similar to other local governments.

Introduction to the Framework Agreement
Principles of the Framework Agreement
Today, the Framework Agreement has expanded to include an ever-growing number of communities across Canada who are interested in replacing the lands restrictions of the Indian Act with their own land code laws and policies.
Each operational signatory community to the Framework Agreement assumes the full law-making authority and management of their reserve lands, environment and natural resources when they ratify their land code.
Canada ratified the Framework Agreement through the passage of the First Nations Land Management Act, which was assented to June 17, 1999.
The LAB was established by the originating First Nations of the Framework Agreement. The LAB is comprised of an elected Chairman and regionally elected Directors, determined by the Councils of the Operational signatory First Nations. The LAB is the political body supporting signatories to the Framework Agreement in the implementation of their own land management regimes.
