Montana Tax Records
This entry was originally written by Dwight A. Radford for Red Book: American State, County, and Town Sources.
Property taxes in Montana consisted of the name of the individual and a description of the property. Delinquent tax records included the delinquency date, penalty, interest, and amount due. Tax records are arranged by range, township, and section number, and can be obtained by contacting the clerk and recorder at the county courthouse. The National Archives has the records for the Bureau of Internal Revenue (1864–72) for Montana Territory. These are also on microfilm at the FHL.
