Yellowstone County grants tax break to Phillips 66 oil refinery

November 15, 2017View for printing

Yellowstone County on Tuesday approved a tax break sought by Phillips 66 oil refinery in Billings for a $298 million project to improve crude oil processing and sulfur recovery.

The project qualified for the tax reduction under a county program for qualifying new or expanding businesses.

Two Phillips 66 employees spoke for the tax break; no one opposed it.

Commission Chairman John Ostlund said the county traditionally has honored requests for the tax incentive and noted the large investment by the refinery.
