Xatśūll First Nation is able to collect the taxation dollars from the utilities located on Deep Creek Reserve IR#2 and Soda Creek Band IR#2 through section 83 of the Indian Act.
Xatśūll currently holds 8 taxation portfolios. The majority of the taxation dollars come from the pipelines that run through Deep Creek Reserve IR. 2. We also collect taxation dollars from the telephone company.
Some of the lease agreements that Xatśūll (Soda Creek Band) has are with Pioneer Log Homes and the Nenqayni Treatment Center. Xatśūll also leases the billboards that are located on Deep Creek Reserve.
The majority of the taxation dollars are spent on Community Services, such as sending the Elders to Elders Gatherings each year.
