The Omaha Tribal Court will hear a complaint Monday more than four years after it was filed by several Pender, Nebraska retailers seeking to keep the tribe from imposing a tax on their liquor sales.
The Omaha Tribe of Nebraska believes the village of Pender is within the boundaries of the Omaha Reservation, making liquor establishments there subject to a tribal tax on liquor.
A group of Pender retailers filed a complaint with the tribal court in early 2008 arguing that Pender does not lie within the Omaha reservation and therefore is not subject to the tribe's liquor regulations. Those regulations include licenses for businesses that sell alcohol and a 10 percent tax on alcohol purchases.
