Montana residents may soon receive up to $1,250 in cash, following the state legislature’s passing of a $1 billion tax relief package.
Tax Relief Package in Montana
The tax relief package, which includes various tax cuts and rebates, is expected to be signed into law by Governor Greg Gianforte. The largest portion of the rebate, $280 million, will be allocated for property taxes, providing each homeowner in Montana with a $500 rebate in both 2023 and 2024 on their primary residence, according to The U.S. Sun.
Additionally, Montanans who paid income tax may receive a rebate of up to $1,250, although it is unclear whether there are any income restrictions or how many people will be eligible for both payments. The governor’s office has not yet provided further comment on the matter.

Benefits of Tax Relief Package
Governor Gianforte has hailed the package as the largest tax cut in Montana’s history, providing much-needed relief to hardworking taxpayers. The move is expected to stimulate the economy by putting more money back into the hands of consumers.
In a published article in US News, the governor’s proposal for a $1,000 rebate in each of the next two years was scaled back to $500, but the overall package is still a significant one. Montana residents will have to wait for the governor’s approval of the package and further details from the state on how to claim their rebates.
Nevertheless, the prospect of receiving up to $1,250 in cash is good news for many Montanans, who will welcome the extra funds at a time of economic uncertainty.
