Governor encourages Montana homeowners to apply for property tax rebate by Oct.1
Application window opened Aug. 15
News from the office of Governor Gianforte
HELENA — Beginning Aug. 15, eligible Montana homeowners may claim their property tax rebate up to $675 at getmyrebate.mt.gov. Claims must be filed by Oct. 1, 2023.
“Property taxes are too high, which is why we prioritized and secured immediate property tax relief for Montanans this legislative session,” Gov. Gianforte said. “I encourage folks to get online tomorrow and claim their rebate.”
To qualify for the rebate, taxpayers must have owned and lived in their home for at least seven months during 2022. The amount of the rebate is the property taxes paid on this principal Montana residence for 2022, up to $675.
To claim the rebate, taxpayers may apply at either getmyrebate.mt.gov or by paper form.
“The fastest way to get your rebate is to apply online”, said Montana Department of Revenue Director Brendan Beatty. “Make sure to apply by the deadline of Oct. 1.”
The application requires the physical address, geocode, amount of property taxes paid as shown on the property tax bill, and the names and social security numbers of the taxpayer and any spouse or dependents.
The Department of Revenue has created several tools on getmyrebate.mt.gov to aid taxpayers in compiling this information, including a video demonstrating how to find a property’s geocode.
Taxpayers may choose how they receive the rebate during their application process. The quickest way to get the rebate is by direct deposit to a bank account. However, taxpayers can also have their rebate mailed to them by check.
The department will process claims as they are received and distribute rebates by December 31, 2023.
Montana homeowners will be eligible for a second property tax rebate up to $675 in 2024 for property taxes paid on a principal residence for 2023.
Last November, the governor proposed $2,000 in property tax rebates for Montana homeowners at their primary residence in his Budget for Montana Families.
