Pechanga Tribe and Chairman Macarro Want Californians to Pay MORE taxes. Many Pechanga People are EXEMPT from State income taxes

Steven Greenhut from Cal Watchdog reports that the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians SUPPORT more taxes for Californians. Well, that's because many of THEM do not pay income taxes, because they live on the reservation. Here's what Steven wrote:

Governor Jerry Brown today announced that he has received supportive letters from the Pechanga Band of LuiseƱo Indians and the California Grocers Association for his budget plan and letting California voters decide whether or not to temporarily extend existing taxes.

In a letter to the California State Legislature, Mark Macarro, tribal chairman of Pechanga Tribe wrote, “Given the deep and seemingly unbridgeable philosophical divide that exists in our State Capitol today, we believe the voice of the voters must be heard to determine the size, scope, and efficacy of services provided by state government.”  “California is clearly at a crossroads. The voters and taxpayers should have the right to decide on whether or not to continue paying higher taxes or further reduce funding for public safety, schools, universities, and support for California’s most vulnerable citizens.”



THIS IS THE SAME Mark Macarro that DID NOT want you, the citizens of California to VOTE on expanded gaming, REMEMBER?  THEY SUED us...!  This is rich, and would be funny if not for the tragic events that Pechanga and Mr. Macarro perpetrated on their own citizens.    They have stolen $1.3 million of TAXABLE monies EACH from over 230 people.

How about changing tribal law to have withholding of Pechanga's per capita payments to it's remaining people?   They were up to $360,000 EACH after disenrolling 25% of their tribe.    Come on Macarro, put your OWN money on the line.

Of course Mark & John Maccaro support State Tax increase...even though they don't live on the Reservation they have fake mailboxes that say they do so that they're exempt from State Taxes. As does Raymond Basquez, Ed Burpe, Gloria Wright and many others from the CPP. If they can steal from their own people why not the State!

This looks more like a political move by Mark to elude higher revenue withholdings on future slot machines. Audit the books and you will see that Pechanga and the big 4 gaming tribes could pay more revenue from slot revenue.

If Mark is not paying State Taxes and lives off the Rez. You can report them to the State and explain to them that he has no place of dwelling on the Rez and show the a photo of the mail Boxes in front of the Tribal hall. You can get his physical address on google. I should know, I been through this with the State and you have to give them evidence that appease's them.
Now you can have two homes like I did (one on the Rez & one off)and the years that I lived off the rez, I paid them
There share.

Does anybody have any proof that Macarro or the others don't pay state taxes, how would you know this?

It is my understanding that Macarro's primary residence is in Temecula off of the Rez so he would be required to pay state income tax on his per capita.

First I understood that Macarro never owned rez property. Is this correct? Second if the tribe is sovereign and their own NATION, they have no business in our affairs......The people of the state of California..

Tribes need to learn their place, you are either one big happy family with the rest of the U.S. or you are alone in this world

Seems to me that the tribe should pay taxes on all of its earned and unearned income also does the tribe still charge 10% for rooms and services at the hotel? Do they then give the 8.5% to the state or do they pocket that money?

Those taxes go to the tribe.

Mark Macarro has no moral authority to be talking about anything.

Don't expect any honest answers from this vile;imhumane person.

Mark Macarro does own property on the Rez, located by were Snake lives (Wolfs sister). He shares his property with some of the Hunter clan. That's why he hate them, because some of them will not back down from him or his fat pig monkey brother. The only way to know if he pays the State tax or does not. Write a letter to start a Investigation & if there is a lot of money involved, they will pursue him like he pursued the Hunter family.

Yes, reportedly Macarro used the tribal rangers under the power of authority for his own personal gain to keep our relatives off of their portion of this land.

Reportedly our relatives were stopped by Macarro from building on their own land.

Macarros illegally used color of position; using tribal rangers to violate the Madriagas' ownership rights to build their home.

Tribal rangers are thugs used by Macarro brothers to threaten and intimidate their victims.

Madriaga clan has legal right to finish and enjoy their home.

Every owner has legal; equal access to their property. No other owner can violate the property rights of another owner.

Unlawful detention by rangers is lawless tactics to squeeze owners to give up their property rights.

People have no idea of the crimes being perpetrated on and off the reservation. Macarro is not a leader; never has been and never will be.

Mark Macarro and John Macarro hide in the shadows and let their stooges like tribal rangers and and psycotic Victor Rocha to do their dirty work.

Victor is so dumb he doesn't realize the Macarro brothers think he is too stupid to realize that he is being set up to take the fall for them.

"Madriaga clan has legal right to finish and enjoy their home."

It is actually the descendants of one of the Gilbert Tavizon, who are related to the Madriagas, not the Madriagas.

The Madriagas are direct descendants of Paulina Hunter but there are a lot of other direct descendants who are Madriagas.

But it is still wrong for Macarro to abuse his authority.

Gilbert Tavizon Mother was a Madariaga.
