Property taxes skyrocket statewide, but not for Montana Governor Greg Gianforte’s properties

An MTN analysis of property-tax records showed that one residence owned by Gov. Greg Gianforte in Helena actually saw a decrease in property taxes this year, unlike properties owned by others in the same neighborhood. Another of the governor’s properties in Bozeman saw a smaller increase than neighboring properties, largely because of its agriculture designation.

State revenue officials say a reappraisal resulted in the tax decrease for Gianforte’s Helena property, but neighbors in both areas say they’re frustrated by a system they fear is pricing more Montanans out of their homes.
