Gov. Greg Gianforte is again asking state lawmakers to cut taxes this legislative session, largely building off work he started in 2021. Some lawmakers are also pushing for more relief for low-income Montanans.
Republican Sen. Becky Beard from Elliston is carrying the governor’s proposal in a bill that would further cut Montana’s top marginal income tax rate – which most Montanans who make roughly $18,000 a year or more fall into.
Last session, the Legislature cut that rate down to 6.5%, and Beard’s Senate Bill 121 would bring that down again to 5.9%.
