KALISPELL, Mont. – Governor Greg Gianforte today held a press conference to announce his plans to cut taxes for Montana’s small businesses, farmers, and ranchers. The governor unveiled his plan to reform the business equipment tax in the 2023 Legislative Session, building on the tax reforms and cuts enacted in 2021.
“Taxing critical business equipment makes it harder to grow a small business and is a wet blanket on job creation,” Gov. Gianforte said. “That’s why we reformed the business equipment tax in Montana in 2021, providing tax relief to 3,400 small businesses and job creators. And in 2023, we want to build on that success, further reforming the business equipment tax so small business owners can grow their operations and create more good-paying Montana jobs.”
