Residents and visitors to Montana paid $2.9 billion in taxes in 2018


Montana collected $2.9 billion in taxes in 2018, a 10.9 percent increase from the previous year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Annual Survey of State Government Tax Collections (STC).

Most tax revenue came from income taxes ($1.5 billion) and sales and gross receipts taxes ($631.8 million).

The STC survey includes five broad tax categories and up to 25 subcategories. Data is gathered from all 50 state governments and all dependent state-level entities.

The Census Bureau cautions that it sets the tax classifications among the survey categories, and they may differ from the classifications set by the state governments.

Below is a breakdown of how taxes were classified by the bureau and how much was collected.
