This is a huge shell game by Gianforte and the Republicans in Montana
1. Greg implies it is the fault of local governments that taxes are increasing. Yet Montana Republicans refuse to give local governments meaningful ways to increase revenue in the face of increasing costs other than through increasing our property tax. Of course taxes will continue to rise.
2. Greg states in this odoriferous letter that his rebate will ‘almost completely offset what residential taxpayers will pay over the next two years.’ There’s no way that the pittance that Greg is giving me back (my own money, by the way) will offset the $3600 - $5000 I will have to pay in property tax for my home this year. This is a very bold lie from Gianforte.
