Cynthia C. Monteau Moore, Administrator, Property Assessment Division, Montana Department of Revenue

Memorandum to: County Commissioners, County Clerk & Recorders, County Treasurers

Please be advised that while you may see an increase in market value you may not see a commensurate increase in your taxable value or your taxable value may have decreased.  This is due to reporting the full reappraisal values of residential, commercial, and agricultural property instead of the taxable market value that had been previously reported.
