If you paid the full year’s taxes in December, you will still need to pay the additional amount indicated on this bill.

These additional tax collections come after the Montana Supreme Court ruled in favor of Gov. Greg Gianforte against 49 Montana counties that challenged the way the state calculates property tax rates.

The additional tax collections will be sent to the state of Montana, not to any local jurisdictions, according to a Gallatin County media release.

Second-half property taxes are due May 31.
