Please Note the Following Important Tax Information:
- Tax lien information, if applicable, is located on the right-hand side of your bill. The 2001 Montana Legislature passed a law that requires the tax bill to indicate that a tax lien certificate or an assignment of the tax lien has been issued on the property. If this notation appears on your bill, you should contact the Treasurer’s office for information.
- The Tax Payer Number (formerly known as SUID number), which can be located in top right hand corner, should be referred to when making your payment. It is also very helpful to have this number when requesting information by phone.
- It is important to send in the correct half of the stubs (1st or 2nd half) when mailing your payments.
- On the right side of the bill there will be a short explanation if you received low income assistance or veteran's exemption.
- Missoula County collects taxes for many jurisdictions it has no authority over, including the City, School Districts, Fire Districts, and other service districts. If you have a specific question regarding your tax bill, it’s important for you to call the appropriate jurisdiction for answers to your questions.
- Our office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Tax Office also processes Motor Vehicle renewals; you may experience long lines the last week of November and May. You may avoid the lines by mailing your payment or by paying online.
- Online payment ONLY accepts VISA and MASTERCARD payments, at this time.
- Mail must be post-marked on or before the due date to avoid penalty & interest costs. Please note that tax payments made toward the end of May and November may take up to two weeks to be posted due to the high volume of payments received.
Mail payment to:
Missoula County Treasurer

Missoula, MT 59802
