| April 24, 2024 12:00 AM

With discussions with the Governor, the filing application deadline for the property tax assistance program has been extended until June 1, 2024.   

This program can help citizens on a fixed or limited income by reducing the tax rate on their home. To be eligible there are three important facts.

You must own or currently be under contract to purchase a home or mobile/manufactured home.

You must live in the home as a primary residence for a least seven months of the year.

You must have a 2022 Federal Adjusted Gross Income, excluding capital and income losses less than:  *single $27,621 or *married or head of household $37,019.  

The assistance level can be from a 30% to 80% reduction of the normal tax rate.   

To find information on your status, contact your local State Department of Revenue office or call the state office in Helena at 406-444-6900.
