Tax Compliance Bill Draws Supporters, Opponents

“Tax compliance bill draws supporters, opponents,” Billings Gazette, January 27, 2011.

“With hundreds of millions of dollars being cut from human services and education budgets, some advocates on Thursday urged passage of a bill to raise more state revenue by requiring income tax withholdings on sales of Montana real estate by out-of-state residents.

“This is efficient, effective, makes sense and brings in revenue that is already owed to the state by nonresidents to help mitigate the deep cuts that are moving forward in education, health and human services and other important public services and infrastructure,” said Tara Veazey of the Montana Budget and Policy Center.”
