REDUCING AND SIMPLIFYING TAXES:
I Support the Montana Republican Platform Statement on this issue: “Federal, state and
local taxes should be low, broad-based and easily understood.”
Goals for the upcoming session:
-Currently Montana has a 6.9% rate on State Income Taxes. With Wyoming and
South Dakota at 0% and North Dakota at 3.9%, we can do better to help attract
investors. We must also work to simplify the Montana income tax code so that it
will be easier for average people to file.
-I will also continue to support all forms of tax relief (property tax, income tax, business
equipment tax) and work to get the surplus back to the taxpayers that overpaid.
