Study: Missoula immigrant, refugee population vital to state economy, local workforce

July 12, 2018View for printing

The immigrant community in a five-county region surrounding Missoula paid $7 million in state taxes in 2016 and more than $19 million in federal taxes, according to a report released Wednesday by the New American Economy and the International Rescue Committee.

While immigrants in the region number less than 5,000, or 2.3 percent of the population, they earned a combined $119 million the year of the study and represented more than $93 million in spending power after taxes.
