Montana Tax Tip: Property Tax Assistance Available

Montana homeowners on fixed or limited incomes can seek relief through the Montana Department of Revenue Property Tax Assistance Program.

 

Property owners have through April 15 to apply.

 

Property tax relief is available for 30, 50 or 80 percent on the first $200,000 of a home’s value, depending on the applicant’s income and marital status.

 

Taxpayers do not have to reapply year after year. As long as they continue to own and live in their homes, their applications will remain active and the department will send letters informing the homeowners of their current status.

 

For more information including qualifying incomes for the program, visit revenue.mt.gov, call (406) 444-6900, or visit your local Department of Revenue field office.
