Description

KOAT-TV investigated how a New Mexico Indian Pueblo "secretly evaded hundreds of thousands of dollars in gasoline taxes through a fraud scheme called bump and run.... It means a fraudulent transaction where (Native American wholesale gasoline distribution businesses) bring product onto the reservation, they don't offload it, all they do is stamp that it has been offloaded, and take it into the marketplace and sell it tax-free."
