The per capita distribution for EBCI tribal members for December 2015 is more than $300 (before taxes) more than the December 2014 amount. This year’s per capita raw amount is $5,595 before taxes according to a post on Facebook by Principal Chief Patrick Lambert. He related that there will be a mandatory tax of $44 withheld on those who do not have voluntary withholding so the total will be $5,551.
The after-tax withholding amount for those with voluntary withholding is $4,756 which is $314 more than last year’s amount of $4,442.
“I want to say thank you to all the casino/gaming workers for this revenue for and on behalf of our enrolled members,” Chief Lambert wrote, “and, also to the many workers on the tribal side who make sure there is proper accounting and disbursement of the per cap to you. I look forward to being able to get the checks out to you and hope you have a great upcoming holiday season!”
