HELENA — The Montana Department of Revenue says more than 207,000 property tax rebates were approved during the August and September application period.
For this year, the state received 226,711 applications during the roughly six-week period people could apply for a rebate. 207,528 of those rebates were accepted and 10,538 were denied. A total of 2,723 claims were deemed fraudulent by the state.
Overall, $136,943,542 was paid to property owners through the rebate.
The total numbers could change as the state will honor mail applications postmarked on the deadline date of October 2.
In 2024, homeowners will again be eligible to claim another rebate of up to $675 on this year’s property taxes.
