Tax Relief in Montana

Montana MapMontana residents tend to average in the middle of nationwide rankings when considering various dimensions of tax collection. For example, Montanans pay approximately $1,347 per person in property taxes each year, which is 24th highest in the United States. The state’s top individual income tax rate of 6.9% ranks 14th highest among all states that collect individual income taxes. Those state and local income taxes collected average $817 per resident, which ranks 23rd lowest nationally.

Montana does even better when looking at federal income taxes. State residents pay an average of $8,120 in federal income taxes each year, compared to a national average of $11,715.

On the other hand, Montanans have the 12th lowest median household income at $44,132, and that amount represents a decline of 10% in recent years. Because residents have less money to meet the rising costs of groceries, rent, medical bills, and utilities, they often have no savings set aside to pay their tax bills as April approaches. When faced with urgent, pressing financial needs, paying taxes is easy to overlook when allocating what little monetary resources a person has. Not having set aside enough money to pay local, state, and federal taxes, many Montanans face the difficult situation of having increasing tax debts and not knowing how to address them.

Increasingly, residents of Montana are turning to tax relief as a means of getting out of their serious tax issues. Tax relief companies help clients to address their mounting tax debts and alleviate the pressure of dealing with federal and state tax authorities, and can often help their clients significantly reduce their overall tax debt. To do this, tax relief experts use tools such as Offer in Compromise or Installment Agreements with the IRS, audit representation and reconsideration, and tax return review.
