755.0000 STATE-ASSESSED PROPERTY
755.0128 Tribal Tax on State-Assessed Utility Property on Indian Land. Where property owned and used by a public utility traverses Indian land, that property may be assessed by both the State Board of Equalization for local property taxation and be subject to a property tax imposed by the Indian tribe without violating the prohibition against double taxation. Double taxation occurs only when two taxes of the same character are imposed on the same property, for the same purpose, by the same taxing authority, within the same jurisdiction and during the same taxing period.
