Montana Department of Revenue Releases 2014-2016 Biennial Report

Helena – The Montana Department of Revenue announces the release of its biennial report. The several-hundred-page publication provides detailed information about the department’s tax administration and liquor control responsibilities for the biennium from July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2016.

Montana law requires the department to publish the report every two years and submit it to the governor and legislature. The public can access the report online at revenue.mt.gov.

“The Biennial Report serves as an information resource to improve public understanding of Montana’s tax and liquor control systems,” said Mike Kadas, Director, Montana Department of Revenue. “We hope Montanans find this report an effective tool for understanding the department and the tax base of Montana.”

As the report shows, the taxes that the department collects and distributes across the state fund essential public services and contribute to an overall improvement of Montana’s quality of life, with: 

  • 32.6% of all revenue allocated to education
  • 31.4% to public safety, welfare and health
  • 20.5% to natural resources and infrastructure
