News from the Montana Department of Revenue

HELENA – The Montana Department of Revenue announced the release of its Biennial Report on Friday. The 385-page publication provides detailed information on taxes administered by the department and tax collections for the biennium between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2014. Montana law requires that the Department of Revenue publish the report every two years and submit it to the governor and legislature. It is available to the public online at revenue.mt.gov under the What’s New section.

• 20.7 percent to natural resources and infrastructure

• 13.7 percent to administrative, legislative and judicial costs
