Default Cigarettes purchased in NY from Indian reservation

I received a tax bill for over 200 dollars from NYS for cigarettes I purchased back in 2008. I purchased them from an Indian reservation in NY and am also a NY resident. I thought that Native Americans were exempt from taxation on cigarettes that they sell to NY residents. The company was CD2U. Can anyone provide any input on this?

Default Re: Cigarettes purchased in NY from Indian reservation

I wish to inform you that as per N.Y. TAX. LAW ยง 471-e all cigarettes sold on an Indian reservation to non-members of the nation or tribe or to non-Indians shall be taxed, and evidence of such tax will be by means of an affixed cigarette tax stamp. Hence if you have purchased cigrettee which is not taxed then government may demand tax.
