State legislators consider bills restricting Montana tax increment financing districts

July 12, 2018View for printing

Republican Rep. Adam Hertz of Missoula said there are widespread issues of abuse in TIF districts statewide and the districts are "at this point, a disaster."

State legislators considered three draft bills intended to tighten controls on tax increment financing during a joint committee meeting at the Capitol Wednesday.

None of the bills made it out of committee yet, and there was strong opposition to two of the three during public comment.

However, the scrutiny of tax increment financing districts and perceived abuses will almost surely continue through the 2019 legislative session.
