Former Montana revenue director says property tax system ‘rigged,’ ‘broken’
Homeowners and renters in Montana are about to experience the largest property tax increase in history — and it’s by design, said Dan Bucks, former head of the Montana Department of Revenue.
They’ll pay nearly $200 million more altogether, Bucks said.
On the other hand, he said, large entities such as telecommunications companies received a tax break last year approximately half that amount, or $107 million.
Panel members included Hertz, as well as Missoula County Commissioner Josh Slotnik and former Montana Department of Revenue director Dan Bucks.
