Income & Property Tax Rebates for Montana
Posted: March 23, 2023 by Mark L. Corner
On March 13th, the 2023 Montana Legislature passed and the Governor just signed House Bills 192 & 222 which will give Montanans a rebate on their income taxes paid in 2021 and property taxes paid in 2022 & 2023. The state has a multi-billion dollar surplus and collected more money than it needs. The income tax rebate checks will be the lesser of the tax you paid on line 20 of your Montana Income Tax Form 2 in 2021 or $1,250 for individuals and $2,500 for married couples filing jointly. The checks or an online deposit will be processed automatically in July. This will account for $480 million of the surplus. For the property tax rebate, homeowners will have to file for their $500 rebate each year after August 15th online or by paper for property taxes paid in 2022 and the same filing again in 2024 for property taxes paid in 2023. This will account for $280 million of the surplus. Here is a link to the Montana Dept of Revenue where you can access their online portal for filing for the property tax rebates and additional details about the rebates.
