MonTax is the most trusted resource for nonpartisan tax and government spending information.
We connect our members and others with the right people and the right resources in our organization to best answer their questions. By offering our high-quality resources, we support a well-informed public dialogue on tax and public expenditure issues.
As the voice for taxpaying businesses and individuals in the state, the Montana Taxpayers Association monitors state legislative activity and works on both the state and national levels to promote good tax policy.
We support or oppose tax policy issues while educating legislators on the workings of the tax systems in Montana from our — and taxpayers’ — perspective, ensuring that state agencies are not the only source of information. When necessary, we will propose legislation, but we are typically serving as either proponents or opponents of bills brought by legislators or agencies.
We lobby and actively participate in all legislative sessions. During the interim, we monitor meetings, administrative rule hearings and committees related to taxation and government expenditures. We also bring stakeholders together to discuss and obtain their input on tax issues as we prepare for the next session
Our members count on us to serve as their watchdog as well as their connection for information during the legislative process. We maintain ongoing communications with the state administration and the Department of Revenue to ensure our members’ concerns are addressed. At our Annual Meeting, and in our newsletter, we provide updates on what’s going on in the legislature.
