The Department of Revenue (DOR) recently dispersed property appraisal notices (that are unfortunately inaccurate), and they’ve also planned a series of public meetings, July 6 thru 26, to explain how they determined the new values.
We encourage you to take this as a great opportunity to inform your citizens and help them understand the facts about how local government property taxes really work including how local governments are not allowed to keep up with inflation. And be sure they know real story about what property tax increases will look like this year in your communities!
The Montana Free Press has published a thorough and informative piece on how property taxes work in Montana. In short, it’s amazing, and we highly encourage you to review it and share it with your community.
The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy published a presentation that highlights how Montana's property tax system works and how it differs from most others across the country.
